Library Research Consultations - When you are ready to start a research paper or thesis and would like help one-on-one, schedule a Research Consultation. You will meet with a librarian to discover sources for your topic and learn how to use these sources to perform your research.

Orientations - Have you ever thought, "They should offer classes on how to use this stuff!"? We do! Contact a librarian to arrange for a one-on-one orientation to the UGA Libraries.

If you are interested in a guided tour of the MLC, please contact Sandra Riggs ( or 706-542-6233) to learn more about the many services and features offered at the MLC.

We are here to help so don't be shy, just ask!
