Student Research Consultants

Student Research Consultants (SRCs) are Cal State LA students who have been trained to help with basic research and citation questions. If you need help getting started with your research, brainstorming keywords, finding books and articles on a particular subject, or formatting citations, make a half-hour appointment to meet with a research consultant.

Please note that SRCs will not complete research or format citations for you, but they will provide examples and model best practices to walk you through the research and citation process.
