In person appointment requirements

Requirements for attending an in person appointment with an Academic Liaison Librarian.

To maintain your safety and that of our staff, you will be expected to meet the requirements below for in person
research consultations. If you are not able to meet the requirements, we ask that you request an online consultation.

You will receive a response within 24 hours (Monday – Friday). We will seek to locate a librarian available on your requested
days and with the closest possible match to your subject area. Please note however, an online consultation will likely occur sooner than a request for an in-person consultation.
