The University of Massachusetts Amherst

Research Consultation

UMass Amherst faculty, students, staff, and community residents may schedule a consultation with a librarian in a subject area to obtain assistance with a paper, research, thesis, or dissertation project. We can help you make the best possible use of UMass Library resources and other resources available online. 

We can meet with patrons in person, virtually via Zoom or over the phone.

A librarian will contact you within 48 business hours.

If you need more immediate assistance, please use the "Ask a Librarian" service, which is available Monday through Friday from 9am - 5pm.
