Research Assistance Program (RAP) Sessions Available

Do you think you need a little extra help with your term paper or research project, such as refining your topic or locating useful and appropriate sources? 

The subject librarians can offer some extra guidance through a RAP session tailored to a specific research need.

RAP is designed to:
• Provide one-one assistance
   for research assignments with
   a subject reference librarian.
• Help you find appropriate
   sources of information
   (databases, print sources)
   based on the requirements of
   your assignment.
• Show you search techniques,
   including identifying
   relevant subject headings and
   limit functions.
• Help you find valuable
   resources outside of Pickler
   through MOBIUS and
   Interlibrary Loan services.

Reference librarians can help find appropriate resources for:
• Class presentations.
• Term papers.
• Undergraduate research
• Graduate thesis or project.
