Student Peer Research Consultants: A New Way to Get Research Help!

by Lydia Bello on 2020-11-02T16:24:00-08:00 | Comments



Join Lemieux Library and the Learning Commons Partners in welcoming a new academic service: Student Peer Research Consultants (SPRCs)! You may have gotten tutoring from subject specialists in the Learning Assistance Programs, editing assistance from Writing Center consultants, or math help from the Math Lab. Now you can get the same support for your research projects!


SPRCs are current Seattle University students with a wide range in majors and research experience. They emphasize a peer-based approach to library research help and have knowledge and experience in different academic colleges at SU, UCOR courses, academic programs, and more. SPRCs emphasize an accessible, supportive, and friendly approach to research!

Research Services began this program in Winter Quarter 2019, with the hopes of making SPRC-supported classes, events, and research consultations available to undergraduate students. When COVID hit in early 2020, our Student Peer Research Consultants were essential in adapting our library research services from in person to online. Our SPRCs staff our chat service during daytime hours. They are the first to help you with your library and research questions and connect you with librarians if you need more in-depth support. 

If you are taking a UCOR course, you may have already met a Student Peer Research Consultant! Consultants assist with library class sessions to help develop keywords, learn to search effectively, navigate databases, refine research topics. 

Please visit our SPRC website to learn more about our SPRCs and find ways to get research support.

To our Faculty, we encourage you to recommend this service to your students. If you have questions about the SPRC program or are interested in inviting an SPRC to your library session, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Research Services.
