Librarians are providing one-on-one research appointments via Zoom video conference or on the phone. 

Research appointments can help you select a research topic, find credible sources for a paper, create citations for your sources, or just talk through something you feel "stuck" on in your research.

Feel free to schedule an appointment:

Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri: 10:00am - 2:00pm
Wed: 2:00pm - 6:00pm

After you schedule an appointment, you will get a confirmation email with a link to the Zoom meeting room and a phone number with a passcode.

Note: We are willing to figure out a better time to help you if these hours don't work with your schedule. Just send us an email or leave a voice message so we can set up a mutually convenient time.


You can always get help with research, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Our partner librarians at other colleges are ready and waiting.

Your very own Seattle Central librarians are online to chat with you at various hours Monday to Friday between 10:00am and 6:00pm.
