Peer Research Consultants 2020-2021: Home

This guide introduces the Peer Research Consultants.

About the PRCs

Peer Research Consultants staff the Research Desk in Roy O. West Library. They go through extensive training to learn how to best help other students with their own library research questions. When they feel like a librarian can best help someone, they'll recommend that the student make an appointment with a librarian.  The Research Desk schedule is available online.
