Research Consultation

Our research consultation service is available to all members of the University of Akron community, including undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty. If you need help with research for a term paper, presentation, thesis or dissertation, publication, or other project, you may meet one-on-one with a University of Akron Librarian, who can:

  • Help you identify the best resources for your subject
  • Suggest strategies for searching specific databases
  • Help in identifying primary source material
  • Assist in finding and using government documents and statistical data
  • Develop your research skills and help you assess your progress
  • Explain how to obtain materials from other institutions

You can find your subject librarian by using our "Who is my subject librarian?" page.
