Struggling with research? The library can help!

The library offers research help through reference appointments.

A reference appointment is a one-on-one meeting with a librarian.

  • During the appointment, a librarian meets with a student, faculty member, or staff member to help the individual research his/her subject.
  • During the appointment, a librarian will not do the research for the individual, instead the librarian will show the individual how to research a specific subject or topic.
  • Reference appointments generally last about 30 minutes, depending on the subject.
  • Please make appointments at least a week in advance.
  • To make an appointment, visit http://researchguides.waketech.edu/Instruction/referenceappointment

Top Ten Reasons to See Your Advisor

Your academic or faculty advisor is your personal advocate for success at Wake Tech, and beyond. Advisors are committed to creating an environment that is welcoming, professional, and supportive.

Here are at least ten reasons why you should meet with your advisor on a regular basis:

10. To learn about campus resources
9.   Discover visit dates of transfer colleges
8.   Acquire help reviewing test scores
7.   To better understand transfer credit
6.   To decipher registration error messages
5.   To find out about transfer options
4.   To ask questions about withdrawing from or adding a class
3.   Change or add a program
2.   To plan out next semester’s courses
1.   To better understand your Program Evaluation (degree requirements)
