Steps for booking an appointment with a librarian


  1. Select ‘Library’ from the list of service areas that you would like to meet with.
  2. Select the length of appointment you would like from the drop-down menu, then select the staff member you would like to meet with (‘no preference’ is selected by default).
  3. Choose a date and time (Pacific Time) that works for you.
  4. Enter your name, your program, and your contact details. You may also identify what you’d like to focus on or provide a short summary of your topic. For example: “I am looking for literature on collaborative leadership in healthcare”.
  5. Click the blue button to confirm your appointment.
  6. You’ll receive an email with a calendar invite confirming your appointment. This confirmation email will also contain a link to cancel if you are unable to keep your appointment.
