Schedule a Research Consultation with a Bentley Librarian!

Reference Librarians are, first and foremost, researchers, and the Bentley Librarians have a particular expertise with the content, collections and scope of the resources available at Bentley University.

We are here to help you achieve the goal of an excellent paper or project.

We assist with:

  • Planning a research strategy.
  • Database selection & searching.
  • Locating specific materials.

Many of these activities can be done directly with a librarian at the Reference Desk, but booking an appointment can help save you time and will help you get the most out of the resources available to you.

Assistance is available for all skill levels and interests! Examples of these might include:

  • First year student working on a pro/con paper.
  • Upperclassman working on an honors capstone thesis.
  • Student researching a company in preparation for a job interview.
  • Graduate student team working on a strategic marketing plan.
  • PhD student working on a dissertation.
  • Professor working on her/his own research or curricular design.
  • And many more…

Click here to schedule a one-on-one research consultation with a Bentley Reference Librarian! Consultations last about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the needs of the user and take place during normal Reference Librarian hours. Consultations need to be booked with at least 24 hours advanced notice for users to make the most of these sessions.

For more immediate assistance, help is also available at the Reference Desk.

Research Guides to the Rescue

What do you do when you don’t have time to ask a librarian for help? Where can you turn for a list of the best databases or books to use for your class assignment? Where do you get help when the Reference Desk is closed? Give our online library research guides a try!

Library research guides are available for a number of popular research topics and course assignments (like GB214 and GB320). The guides are designed by Bentley Reference Librarians to help you locate the best resources for your research. Research guides can answer questions like:

“How do I get information about a company?”

“Where do I find financial ratios for an industry?”

“Which databases should I use to get articles for my Business Ethics paper?”

“How do I cite sources in APA Style?”

“I’m taking GB214. What are the best databases for my assignment?”

The entire collection of library research guides is available at http://libguides.bentley.edu/, or just look for the link on our homepage.
