Research Consultation

Research Consultation Appointments

Having trouble getting started on a research project? Our reference librarians can help you narrow your focus or explore possible topics of interest.

Having trouble locating resources? We can also help you search for, evaluate, and cite resources. We can even request them from another library through Interlibrary Loan!

Need more help along the way? We are happy to schedule an appointment to assist you during the research process.

To schedule an appointment, call us at 828-627-4550, email, or stop by the circulation desk during normal hours of operation.


To help the HCC Librarians during your appointment please bring with you the following information:

  • Your class and instructor
  • Description of the assignment (often found in the syllabus or class handout)
  • Due date
  • Number and types of sources needed
  • Required citation style
