Book a research consultation

Most U of T students, faculty, and staff may make appointments with librarians from the Engineering & Computer Science Library to discuss research questions and search strategies.

**Please note: First year engineering students should visit our research help service. Research consultations are not available for help with APS 111/112 or Praxis I/II projects.

ECSL Librarians offer:

  • 30-60 minute appointments 

  • Available: Monday - Friday 9:30am - 5:00pm (individual librarian's availability varies) 

Once you submit the form you will receive a reply from staff within 1-2 business days (Monday-Friday only, excluding holidays). Please note that during periods of high activity, response time and availability may vary.  

If you have a research question (e.g. finding information for an assignment) that does not require an appointment please send an email to or visit the library

Failure to provide sufficient detail in your request may result in a delay in scheduling your consultation. 

If you are an undergraduate student doing research in a laboratory please tell us what department or division your laboratory is in.
