Peer Research Consultants Online

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

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

Peer research consultants have transitioned to working completely online for the rest of spring 2020 semester, instead of working in our usual Learning Commons location.

We are available for immediate assistance daily through our chat service in the sidebar:

Mon – Thurs 10 am – 10 pm
Fri 10 am – 5 pm
Sun 10 am – 6 pm

Or, please book an appointment through Navigate, or send a question to our Ask a Librarian email:

To access research help on all three campuses, check out our comprehensive Ask a Librarian service.

We also work closely with our partners in the Learning Commons, who offer a variety of tutoring services including in math and modern languages, as well as help with multimedia projects through the Creative Studio:
