To review, the Peer Research Consultants (PRC) is a program aimed at first year, international, and first generation undergraduates and provide one-on-one assistance to students to help them develop the research strategies and find useful sources (articles, books, etc.) needed for excellent research papers.
The service compliments our strong liaison librarian program integrated into all departments on campus and our great service point staff. We know many students are comfortable with the peer tutoring model that the PRCs use and the average interaction between students and PRCs is 30 minutes. The PRCs can help students in narrowing a topic, finding articles and books, selecting academic sources, evaluating and more. The PRCs are familiar with the Intro to Library Research workshops and will help build on the skills learned in these sessions.
