Research Help

Research help is available to students at any stage in the research process. Students can schedule a virtual consultation with our team of Research Services Librarians and Student Peer Research Consultants (SPRCs) to get help finding and assessing sources, learn database search skills, and develop research topics.

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