Research Coach - Summer 2019

Summer Research Coaching is available through July 18th.


Do you have a research assignment and no idea where to begin?  Overwhelmed by all the information you’re finding on your topic?

We're here to help!

PC Librarians serve as Research Coaches to provide students with an opportunity for one-on-one (or small group) meetings, during which the librarian's undivided attention is focused on your research needs. Research Coaches will assist you with challenges students often face when doing research, such as:

  • Framing your research question
  • Choosing where to look for resources
  • Using resources in the most effective way possible
  • Knowing how to evaluate different sources
  • Citing your sources correctly

Research Coaches help with research only.  For writing assistance, please see a writing tutor in the Learning Commons or submit your paper to an online tutor (Brainfuse).

Can’t find a time that works for you?
