Who are Peer Research Consultants?

Peer Research Consultants (PRCs) are students hired and trained through the University Libraries and Learning/Tutoring Centers across Commonwealth University. The purpose of PRCs is to support students with written research projects by providing research assistance and information about the Libraries' and Learning/Tutoring Centers' services and resources. PRCs engage with other students one-on-one, in small groups, with other tutors, and librarians.

What can Peer Research Consultants help with?

Research assistance may include

  • using the library catalog,
  • simple database searching,
  • locating library materials,
  • peer-level guidance on planning and executing research projects, and
  • referrals to library and other faculty when additional support is needed.
