Are you getting the most out of your library collections and services? The library provides a variety of research assistance programs to help navigate, discover, and evaluate the vast collections at UC Davis and beyond.

We can assist with class assignments and papers, help you develop and explore new research areas, and assist you in getting the information and data you need for your project. 

 

Visit the library to meet with a librarian.  Subject librarians are available to help you to find information sources for class assignments, term papers and advanced research projects. 

Library Research Consults are available throughout the quarter from 1-5 Mondays through Fridays and from 1-5pm and Sundays on the 2nd floor of Shields Library.  Speak with a librarian to make sure you are getting the most from your library. Drop by, no appointment needed.
