Support for your research and writing

Research consultation for up to one hour

You can book an online research consultation with me, Diane, the contact librarian for VIC150 (and other education-stream courses at Victoria).
During a consultation we can:

  • discuss your research topic, help you fine tune it (narrow it down to an appropriate thesis or research question)
  • discuss the appropriate tools to use to find supporting research, evidence or additional information
  • enhance your search strategy (help you identify the most effective search terms)

Simply email me: diane.michaud@utoronto.ca and include the following

  • Describe your question or research topic
  • Include an assignment description if applicable
  • Suggest 3 different days/times when you would like to meet (a minimum of 2 days notice is preferred)

In addition, chat reference is available over extensive hours during the fall and winter semesters.
"Ask, Chat with a Librarian" online research help via instant messaging 

The Writing Centre offers invaluable services to help students improve their writing, such as,
individual consultations by appointment, workshops & clinics and online writing handouts.
You can book a writing centre appointment with Vic's Writing Centre, from this page.
