Fwd: Research Coach (PC Library)

Spread the word to your students about the PC Library's “Research Coach” service!   Research Coaches are librarians who assist students with common challenges they often face when doing research, such as:

·         Framing a research question

·         Choosing where to look for resources

·         Using resources in the most effective way possible

·         Knowing how to evaluate different sources

·         Citing sources correctly



Students can schedule an appointment online with a Research Coach or stop by the reference desk.  Research shows that students who use academic library resources and interact with librarians are more engaged with college and are less likely to leave before graduating.
