UConn Health students, faculty, and staff are welcome to make an appointment for a one-on-one consultation with a Research and Instructional Services (RIS) librarian. This service is intended for library users who may need in-depth, advanced help with their research, or to discuss a variety of library services and resources.

Professional librarians are available to answer questions like:

  • What electronic resources are available through the library?
  • How do I access library electronic resources from home?
  • How should I¬†expand or narrow search results from a particular database?
  • What information management applications (e.g., RefWorks ) are available to me?
  • What mobile resources are recommended? How can I download them?

Send an email to to arrange an individual consultation at a time and place convenient to you. Alternatively, you may also call the library at (860) 679-3808 and ask to speak to a RIS Librarian.
