A research consultation is a one-on-one appointment with an APUS librarian. Research consultations are available every day (except holidays), between 10:00 AM and 10:00 PM Eastern time

When should you schedule a research consultation?  All questions are welcome, but research consultations work best when you need to speak with a librarian and see their screen as they explain search techniques, etc. We set aside 45 minutes for each appointment, so that we can take our time.  On the other hand, if you have a simple question or don't have time for an appointment, email, text or chat are also available every day.

These scenarios are good examples of times when a research consultation is a good fit:

  • You have a research assignment, but you're not sure how to get started in our library.
  • You've been searching for information on your research topic, but just can't find what you need. 
  • You're new to online libraries and would like a one-on-one tour and demonstration.
