Librarians at Clark Memorial Library offer research consultation by appointment to SSU faculty, staff, and students. Research consultation provides an opportunity for the researcher to meet for an extended period of time, usually an hour, with a librarian in a private, uninterrupted session.
During the research consultation the librarian may assist the researcher in formulating a search strategy, identifying specific resources which contain pertinent information, or using electronic resources.
A faculty or staff member who needs assistance in accessing resources from the office may request that the consultation be held in his/her office.
Contact the librarian of your choice to schedule an appointment.
Each academic department has a librarian assigned as the department's library liaison.
The library liaison works with the department in selecting and ordering library resources that will meet the research needs of SSU students. The liaison also provides information about new resources, performs librarian-mediated database searching, produces tailored library research guides appropriate to research on particular topics, offers research consultations, presents customized library instruction for departments or for classes, and creates documentation necessary for accreditation reviews. A list of liaisons by department follows:
