Loras's librarians offer one-on-one help with immediate information needs as well as long-term research support for both faculty and students. As your students' research advocates, we help them develop lifelong information literacy skills.

If you think your students would benefit from an individualized research help model, contact us to set up one of the following:
Course-Embedded Research Consultation: A one-on-one appointment with a librarian, either as a requirement or for extra credit. Students complete a form (example: http://loras.libwizard.com/his288copy) before scheduling the meeting and the results are sent to a librarian and you. This allows us to prepare for the meeting and allows you to see how your students’ research is progressing and identify any possible road blocks in your students’ success.
Pop-Up Library Service: A librarian can hold office hours outside of your classroom so students can easily receive research help or schedule an appointment for a later time as they are leaving class.
Research guides are customized lists of library databases, books, & websites designed for a specific topic or course.Below are examples of some existing research and course guides. Contact a Librarian for assistance in developing a new guide or editing an existing one. Below are some examples of different types of guides:
The Library has 3 Faculty study rooms that can be reserved for your long term research needs. Fill out the Faculty Research Room Reservation form to request a room and we'll follow up with the next steps.
