Online Reference Help

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Reference Librarians will only be available remotely with patrons who need to schedule appointments for research help.

Appointments can be scheduled by following the instructions below, and the Librarians will be available on Microsoft Teams to allow remote in-person interactions. 

If you do not need in-person help, you can use the email referenceservices@johncabot.edu to request support.

Full details about remote reference services are available on the Reference Services page.


 

You can book a variety of sessions with the Reference Librarians. Just click on the dropdowm menu below to select one fo the sessions:

  • Citation assistance - if you need help in citing sources, reviewing your bibliographies, or to make sure that the in-text citations are correct;
  • Research consultation - if you need help researching sources for a project;
  • EN 110 appointment - this is specifically for EN 110 students whose instructors ask them to make a mandatory appointment with the librarians for a research consultation;
  • Thesis assistance - if you are working on your thesis and you need help, especially with the template.

After selecting the Appointment Type, you can choose the librarian you would like to work with. Librarians might have different schedules, so if you want to have more options, you should leave the default option "No preference." 

Then, you select the date in the calendar, and finally you select the time slot that you prefer. The appointment will be automatically set to the length specified by the appointment type.

If you think you might need more time than the pre-selected one, do not hesitate to contact the chosen librarian for more details.
