Old Dominion University Libraries

A Research Consultation is an opportunity for ODU students, faculty, and staff to receive in-depth assistance with library research projects. If you are beginning your research for a term paper or thesis, or if you are having difficulty finding information on a particular topic, you may want to schedule an appointment. You will have an opportunity to work with a subject specialist in your field to discuss appropriate resources and possible strategies for your topic. Consultations generally last between 30 to 60 minutes depending on the complexity of your project and are scheduled between 9am and 5pm Monday through Friday.
