RESEARCH ASSISTANCE

Your liaison librarian is happy to meet with you for a customized research consultation.  Please email Andrew Nicholson (andrew.nicholson@utoronto.ca) to make an appointment. Make sure, however, that you have tried some of the resources listed in this guide first!

Hundreds of university and college libraries make guides like this one available online for free and there may be a guide for your particular topic!  Other library guides can be searched here.

If you need help with writing (as opposed to researching) your paper, contact the Robert Gillespie Academic Skills Centre for assistance.
