You've booked a research appointment for help. That's great!

So we can better support you, please take time to provide the library with information on your topic area/research question in advance of your appointment time.

You can also prepare for your appointment by exploring some of the following online resources in advance:

You will find two dropdown menus on the list of RRU Library databases (accessed by clicking the ‘Access the A-Z database list’ link just under the Discovery search bar on the Library homepage, including one that allows you to filter databases by subject. This can help you identify databases that may be most relevant depending on your topic.


Screenshot of the 'subject' dropdown list. This illustration is intended to illustrate how to find RRU LibGuides in a specific subject area.


If you are starting your search on a broader tool (e.g., Google Scholar or the Library’s Discovery search), it’s important to identify concepts and keywords to develop a search string that will sufficiently narrow your search. Finally, if you have not already done so, please see our Get Started with Research Guide, including this section about how to build search strings based on concepts and keywords to hone in on a specific area.
