Research Assignment Design Consultations

Make an appointment with Cathy Cranston or Katie Hassman to discuss a fresh take on your library research assignments. We are happy to discuss anything, from rewording your assignment for clarity about our library resources, or a complete revamping of your assignment to help address areas where students may need more assistance with the research process.
