Guided Research: meeting with a MICA Librarian

Librarians are available to help students research a topic. Make an appointment at the MICA Information Desk (lower level of Decker Library)  - either in person, by email or by phone. We can meet in the library, a MICA studio or classroom.

This meeting will help you clarify your ideas, provide ways to approach your topic, and identify key terms, print and online resources, and search strategies to help get you started and save time.

A meeting with a librarian usually last 15-30 minutes depending on the scope of the topic. You are always welcome to make follow-up appointments.
