Research & Technology Tutors

The Libraries hire friendly, accomplished students to work in Burling Library as research & technology tutors. Our tutors staff Burling’s research desk Sunday through Thursday, 10 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.; or Saturday 2 p.m.-4 p.m. for a total of 61 hours each week.

Research & technology 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. Our tutors also help students with questions about library and personal computers and library printers and scanners.
