Request a one-on-one research consultation with a librarian
Do you have a detailed research question and need guidance? Are you encountering obstacles in your research?
Book a 30-minute consultation appointment with a John Jay librarian. The librarian will provide personalized guidance and recommendations based on your research topic or assignment. We can help you to: develop a narrower research question; plan your research strategy; identify relevant sources of information; find and evaluate sources.
This service is available to John Jay undergraduate/graduate students and faculty members. These sessions are intended for more advanced research projects. Questions about capstone and thesis projects are especially welcome. Faculty who want their students to learn about the library should request a library instuction class.
If your students have more general questions about a topic, please suggest that they bring their questions to the reference desk. Please note that you can always ask a librarian for help at the Reference Desk without making an appointment. When available, librarians are staffing chat during library regular hours.
