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.

During fall quarter 2021, appointments are available during the following hours:

Mon, Tue, Wed: 10:00am - 1:00pm and 4:00pm - 7:00pm
Thu:  9:00am - 1:00pm and  4:00pm - 7:00pm
Fri:  10:00am - 4:00pm

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 during our open hours.

We are available when you see this image on the library's home page or this Ask page.talk bubble indicating seattle central librarian available for help via chat
