The Library supports your research, teaching and learning in a variety of ways, through support and services. Please contact us! http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/e/crerar/using/staff/specialists.html
Subject-specialists provide in person consultations to both individuals and/or groups of any size. Topics covered in a consultation can range from discussing information resources on a particular research topic to in depth searching of a database(s) to find information. A consultation is as an opportunity to discuss what the library can do to assist with research projects. We will come to your office or work space.
Instruction and Orientation
The librarians at the John Crerar and Eckhart Library provide instruction and orientation sessions to faculty, students and staff of the University of Chicago. Instruction and orientation sessions are customized based on the research, teaching and learning goals of the audience. Sessions can be hands-on in our computer lab, lecture style, a walking tour of the library or a combination of all three. Course specific sessions are welcome. A subject specialist will work closely with the instructor to develop a session to ensure it meets their objectives.
Literature review support
Librarians are available to assist faculty, students and staff with developing their literature search strategy, selecting databases and resources, and helping to find relevant material.
The Library provides reference support, assisting faculty students and staff with identifying and using electronic and print resources, locating specific material in our collection and elsewhere, and accessing electronic resources. We provide these services via email, IM Chat, by phone and in person at the Reference Desk. For in depth questions, librarians are available for consultations. http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/e/crerar/using/reference/
