Schedule a Research Consultation

We invite students, faculty and the staff of QCC to utilize our Research Consultation Service - a customized, in-depth meeting with a library faculty member in the library. Our assistance can include, but is not limited to:

  • Citation help
  • Accessing QCC Archives
  • Locating hard-to-find material
  • Developing research strategies for your topic (using databases, books and the web)
  • Locating suitable journals to publish research, and how to recognize predatory publishers

Here's a bonus video, All Creative Work is Derivative (A Minute Meme by Nina Paley):
