Literature Search

Faculty, Staff, and Post-Docs: Use this form to request a literature search from a librarian.The turnaround time for a literature search is approximately 14 days, but can vary depending on the search criteria and our current workload. Please discuss specific deadlines with your librarian for a conversation about what is feasible.

Other patrons: Use our Ask a Librarian service or contact your Subject Librarian to get research assistance (appointment, email, or chat). We typically do not provide literature searches for work toward the completion of education or certificate programs, but will work with you on developing your search strategies and discuss your specific needs.
