Samuel Rudin Academic Resource Center: Library Resources

Getting started with your research

Research Assistant Program

Have you looked over the library's website? Have you already visited the Research Desk in Ryan Library?

Schedule a one-on-one meeting with a librarian. We'll review your topic before we meet and guide you to the best resources and advanced searching techniques. Set up a Research Assistance Program session at your convenience (RAP for short).

  • Appointments can be made for the day or early evening
  • Appointments must be requested at least 48 hours in advance of the time you would like to meet
  • Appointments should be made at least two weeks before the assignment due date in case we need to get a book or article from another library

Please remember, you can always visit the Ryan Research Desk or search FAQs and contact a Librarian. If you need assistance with writing, please visit the Rudin Center.
