  • Individual research consultation

    Use this form to request an appointment for a research consultation with a reference librarian.

    • Murphy Library Research Consultations provide an opportunity for individuals to meet with a reference librarian for in-depth and personal assistance with a specific advanced information research project.

    • Research consultations are offered as a supplement to regular reference services.  Please consider whether we might be able to help you effectively from the reference desk (walk-up, phone, email, chat, or text; no appointment necessary) before you request a research consultation.

    • You should have a clearly defined information research goal already established.

    • You should be able to discuss what you have already found and where you have already looked.

    • When suggesting days and times that would work for your schedule, allow for a session of up to an hour.  Typical consultation sessions may last 15 - 30 minutes.

    • Once you complete the form, you will hear back from a reference librarian via email.  You will then work with that librarian to finalize the day, time and place for your meeting.

    • Sessions will usually be held in the library, but arrangements can also be made to meet in faculty/staff offices.

    • This service is offered to UW-L students, faculty, and staff, as well as to patrons accessing Federal or Wisconsin government depository materials.
