Personal research consultations are available for all current members of the University of South Carolina community. When you make your request please allow 2 business days for a response, at which time an appointment will be scheduled. Most consultations will take place Monday through Friday between 9am-5pm and typically last 30 to 60 minutes. Evening appointments may be arranged based on librarian availability. Caution: If you have something due in a day or less, you should come to the Reference desk at Thomas Cooper or contact us through Ask A Librarian.

If you are an instructor and looking to schedule a library instruction session for your class, please use the instruction request form.
