Support for your research and writing

Research support:

You can book an in-person or online research consultation for 30-60 mins with me, the librarian contact for this course.

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 (have you go through the process of identifying the most effective search terms)

Just email me to book an appointment:
diane.michaud @ (without the spaces) 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 though live chat/ instant messaging via the "Ask, Chat with a Librarian" service.

The Writing Centre offers individual consultations by appointment, workshops and online writing handouts.
