iDesk

Student Peer Research Consultants will be available to answer questions, help schedule research consultations with Librarians, and direct you to resources and services in the building at our iDesk on the 2nd floor of the Library. Our iDesk hours will be Sunday through Thursday 10am – 5pm, and on Fridays from 10am – 4pm.

Email 

Research, reference, or library related questions can be sent to askalibrarian@seattleu.edu and library staff will reply back within 1-2 business days.

Request a Research Consultation

Librarians and Student Peer Research Consultants are ready to help you with your research! During a research consultation you can discuss how to prepare to do research, how to use the library’s resources, and how to choose sources. You can schedule a research consultation here.

If you would like to schedule an appointment with a specific Librarian, you can find their contact information on the Library’s Staff Directory. You can find who your subject librarian is on Liaison Librarian page.

Get Started with Research Guides

If you are comfortable with researching on your own, and are looking for the right databases or journals, Research Guides are great place to get started. Research Guides are organized by subject and discipline.
