Book a Librarian

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. Book a Librarian online. 

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.

You may also ask a research question using the form below. Or, use the helpful "How Do I Find..." research guide

Ask a question

Current UD students, faculty, and staff may e-mail reference questions to librarians. Requests from non-university affiliated people will be answered as time permits.

You will usually receive a response within 1 business day. For instance, a question received on Friday will receive a response by the following Monday.
