Research Appointments

Whether you are starting your first research project at Williams, or have written a dozen papers already, you can benefit from a one-on-one session with a librarian.

During a research appointment, a librarian can help you:

  • Find specific sources for a research paper, lab report, or other assignment
  • Do a comprehensive literature review for your thesis
  • Search the catalogs of major research centers or archives
  • Request material through interlibrary loan
  • Learn how to use subject-specific research tools
  • Set up Endnote to manage your research citations

See the lists below to identify which librarian works with your department.
