Book a Librarian

At UD there's a librarian for every major; book an appointment with yours for personalized research support and guidance. 

Whether you are starting your first research project or have written a dozen papers already, you can benefit from a one-on-one or group consultation with a librarian. It's free, and you can book online in advance, according to your schedule. You can also select your appointment preference: in person, via Zoom (video conferencing) or by phone call.

During a research consultation a librarian can work with you to:

  • Brainstorm keywords and concepts related to your topic.
  • Find sources for a research paper, speech or other assignment.
  • Conduct a comprehensive literature review for your thesis.
  • Search discipline-specific research databases.
  • Set up Endnote Web, Mendeley or Zotero to manage your research citations and create a Works Cited list in any style.
