Appointments for Art, Business, Memorial, Music, and Steenbock Libraries are available to all faculty, staff, and graduate students, using the appointment request application below.

Before scheduling an appointment, faculty and PIs must request return to on-campus research by completing the Phase 2 Research Reboot request form.

Once an appointment has been scheduled, return to the request form and change the status of the Research Reboot Proposal (question 6) to “approved”.
