Peer Navigators and Graduate Research Assistants
About the Program
Randall Library employs a team of undergraduate and graduate students at our Research Help Desk. They assists their fellow students and other library patrons with a variety of library and technology questions. They help with
- choosing and narrowing down a topic and writing an effective research question
- refining keywords
- finding and evaluating different information sources
- basic technology assistance with desktop computers, software, scanners, and printers
Peer Navigators are undergraduate students who work in collaboration with Randall Librarians during the daytime hours and Graduate Research Assistants provide assistance in the evenings and on weekends. Peer Navigators and Graduate Research Assistants engage in intensive training before the start of the academic year and participate in other training experiences throughout the fall and spring semesters. Available positions are posted on Handshake.
