New sign-up options for Research Advisory Service

It’s easier than ever to make an appointment for our popular Research Advisory Service. 

  • You can now reserve any available time slot during the same week.
  • Sign up at the Reference Desk (2nd floor, Doe Library), or
  • Call 642-6657 and we’ll sign you up.
Either method will get you a free half-hour session with a librarian who can help you refine and focus research inquiries, identify appropriate online and print tools, and develop search strategies.
UC Berkeley undergraduates writing term papers or engaged in research projects for their humanities, social sciences, and international and area studies classes are eligible for this service.
