Once your group is assigned your IKEA topic, please schedule an appointment with either a librarian or a research consultant. The last day to schedule an appointment with us is Sunday, November 10th. We will not meet with any groups past this date. 

Schedule a Research Consultation

Goldstein Library provides research consultations with Research Librarians who are interested in your topic and excited to help you research! We are prepared to help you find the information you need to be successful! Our specialization is helping artists and designers find the materials that they need for reference and research (images, books, journal articles, websites, videos, and more); helping you understand how you can use what you find ethically; and how to cite your sources. 

Please note: All research consultations with Research Librarians will be taking place virtually via Zoom until further notice.
