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 one-on-one 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 meeting of up to an hour.

  • 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 a librarian's office, but arrangements can also be made to meet in faculty/staff offices.

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