We are students trained to help our fellow ‘Canes. We are undergrad and grad students from a variety of majors including: philosophy, political science, biochemistry, and business administration. We work closely with librarians and staff for training on how to assist our fellow students with:

  • Developing search strategies
  • Finding scholarly resources
  • Creating and managing citations
  • Facilitating meetings with other Learning Commons experts

We are available for immediate assistance daily through our chat service in the sidebar. You can also request a meeting with a Peer Research Consultant:
