A Research Consultation is an opportunity for ODU students, faculty, and staff to get in-depth assistance with library research. 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. It allows you some uninterrupted time with a librarian to discuss appropriate resources and possible strategies for the topic. An appointment can run anywhere from a half hour to an hour depending on the complexity of the question. This service is limited to registered students, faculty and staff of Old Dominion University.
Request a Technology Consultation (a service of the Student Success Center)
