Want your appointment with a librarian to go quickly? Here are a few tips that should help you get signed off faster:
You have multiple options for getting your sources signed off.
1. Visit the library reference desk during open hours (8:00 - 7:00 Monday through Thursday, 8:00 - 3:30 on Fridays).
2. Get live chat help by accessing the Ask a Librarian service. Maple Woods librarians staff the chat service from 1:30pm to 7:00pm Mondays through Thursdays and 1:30pm to 3:30pm on Fridays.
3. You can also schedule a virtual research appointment with a librarian. Once you select a time, a librarian will send you a Zoom link. Slots are limited.
4. Ask your instructor for the librarian's email address to send your sources in directly. Only do this as a last resort, as turnaround time may be slow. If submitting your sources by email, submit them as an attachment - don't send a link to a Google doc or other cloud file.
When working with a librarian to sign off your sources, share your name. The librarian will email your instructor to tell her when they have approved your sources. Your sources must be completely cited in APA style before they are approved.
