My RC Librarian

My RC Librarian Logo

My RC Librarian is a virtual reference desk on the RC Library Canvas page where students, faculty and staff can drop-in for research help or library-related support from an RC Librarian. Currently open during virtual library operating hours from Monday to Thursday (7:30 - 8:00 PM) and Friday (7:30 AM - 3:00 PM). We are here to help you!

Self-Enroll in our canvas library page here to access My RC Librarian!

What happens when I enter My RC Librarian Zoom meeting room? The librarian will admit you upon entering the waiting room. Your confidentiality is important to us. Like waiting in line at a reference desk, only 1 participant will be admitted at a time and in the order they enter the waiting room. If the librarian does not admit you immediately, they may be busy with another participant. Please wait patiently and the librarian will be with you momentarily.

Need help with an assignment?

Complete the LRA form to schedule an in-depth virtual meeting with a librarian. Sessions are customized to fit your assignment needs and may run at least 30 minutes. Please view the form for more details.

How many times can I submit a form throughout the semester? Is there a limit? There is no limit to how many times you can meet with a librarian. We understand you have different assignments or may need to follow-up with a librarian after you have started your research. We’re here to help!

How will you reach out to me? A librarian will reach out to you via email. Please make sure you provide a valid email address and check your inbox often for a response.

RC Library Spring 2020 Workshop Series

Library workshops are still in session—remotely through Zoom.

The spring 2020 workshop series aims to build students’ digital and information literacy skills. There are four components to guide and support students in research and citation: 1) Research: Books & Articles – learn how to use the library’s OneSearch and online databases to search for physical and digital resources, 2) Google for Internet Research – learn tips and tricks on how to manipulate results in Google to maximize retrieving digital contents online, 3) Citation: Avoid Plagiarism – learn about the latest editions of APA, MLA, and CMS styles to build and enhance your research paper, and 4) Research & Citation Drop-in Services – bring your research and/or citation questions for the librarian to help you one-on-one.

The sessions build upon each other, but they are also stand-alone workshops. Students, faculty and staff in all disciplines are welcome to attend any of the four sessions that are especially relevant to their information and research endeavors. Please register for the workshop you are interested in attending to receive information on how to join the session. See you at the next library workshop!
