Online Research Help from Your Librarian

Need research help? Whether you're a student enrolled in a fully online program or course, or a more traditional student who prefers to work from the comfort of your home, I'm glad to help.

Step 1: Send an email to to schedule a time to meet with me in Zoom (this is the best option to ensure a meeting time). 

Step 2: Rodney will send you a link to meet him in the Zoom room.

A major benefit of using the Zoom webinar system is the screen sharing feature that allows me to provide a live demonstration of the library databases and share links to results. In addition, the ability to ask questions and dialog with you allows me to better understand your research need.
