Research Appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
If you need to cancel an on-campus appointment, please contact us at email@example.com, or call 902-457-6250, or use the cancellation link in your confirmation email.
Online appointments will be held on Microsoft Teams or BB Collaborate. You will receive a link to your appointment before the appointment is to begin.
On-campus appointments will be held in person at the MSVU Library. Please check in at the Library front desk no more than 5 minutes before your appointment is to begin. You must observe all public health protocols during your appointment. This is not a drop-in service. On-Campus appointments must be booked ahead of time.
This service will run 11AM - 3PM Monday to Thursday. When the service is running, you will be able to chat directly with MSVU Library staff. You can get help with things like library account login issues, citation resources, simple research help questions, and more.
Because the service is aimed at providing quick service to basic questions, you may be referred for a research help appointment if it is determined that more in-depth help is required.
