The Libraries hire friendly, accomplished students to work in Burling Library as research tutors. Our tutors staff Burling’s research desk Sunday through Wednesday, 2-6 p.m. and 7-11 p.m. for a total of 32 hours each week.

Tutors help students and faculty members explore potential research topics, search for and obtain relevant material, and consider a wide range of promising sources, such as peer-reviewed scholarship, newspaper articles, images, primary sources, and data, for instance.

To meet with a research tutor, just drop by the research desk in Burling Library; or contact a tutor (641-269-3353, email, or chat) during the hours listed above.
