What should I bring to the appointment?

Bring a copy of the assignment, IF YOU HAVE ONE, AND/OR any research you have already gathered about your topic.

Here is what to expect at your appointment:

  • When you arrive, come to the Reference & Research Desk and let the librarian know that you have an appointment.
