Peer Consultants for Students

Our peer consultants are student employees from culturally diverse backgrounds who contribute their skills and perspective, along with specialized training in information literacy and research, to support teaching and learning at the university.

This work is part of the library’s Peer Information Consulting (PIC) program, a long-running initiative designed to support student success. 

Get support for your research, student-led exhibit, or event

If you need help navigating the library’s services and resources, finding and narrowing a research topic, locating a great source, or creating accurate citations, you can request assistance from a fellow student who works as a peer consultant.

We can also partner with your student organization to cohost an event, help develop an exhibit, and more. 

Get in touch with us at or join our virtual drop-in hours from Sunday through Thursday, 6–10 p.m. at

Support for faculty. We’ll also work with faculty and departments to provide tours of Hatcher and Shapiro libraries, offer classroom or study table support, workshops on library research and developing effective presentations, and more.
