The Research Consultation Service is designed to allow UNA students, faculty, and staff who have questions that are too involved to be adequately answered through a brief encounter at the Reference Desk or by phone to consult one-on-one with a librarian.  This service provides in-depth assistance in library research including identifying and locating the most useful sources of information for your paper, project, or assignment, effective web search strategies, and evaluating information sources.  Among the things a librarian can assist with are:

  • Suggesting the most appropriate databases and other resources for your subject area
  • Locating periodical articles and books on your topic
  • Searching the web to find reliable sources
  • Locating primary documents
  • Locating and using government documents and statistical resources
  • Explaining how to use Interlibrary Loan to request materials from other libraries

If you need help getting started with your research or using the library, schedule an appointment today. Appointments last approximately half an hour, but can run longer depending on the complexity of the question.
