A research consultation is a one-to-one meeting between a researcher and me to discuss aspects of their research project. Researchers are students, undergraduate or graduate, or faculty who want to explore the range of sources available for their project. The researcher's needs drive the topics covered in a consultation.
Here are some real-life examples of past research consultation.
A history student and I work together to identify primary sources on their topic, discuss how to locate and access those sources, and determine the best method to cite the primary source.
A business/economics student and I discuss how to find economic data. I might demonstrate how to download and/or manipulate the data and/or show how to access data dictionaries that describe the variables in a data set.
A graduate student and I discuss how to find peer-reviewed articles on their topic. We also discuss the best way to follow the citation trail for a particular article or find more recent articles that cite a key research source.
I invite you to make an appointment with me. Click on a slot to reserve a time.
I will be out of the office for Winter Break. I will resume my research appointment calendar at the beginning of Spring 2018. Happy Holidays!
