The Library has several research assistants who are available to assist faculty members with short-term research projects. The research librarian who administers this program is available to help define the faculty research project, to supervise the research process, and to monitor the research result. The research assistant bills his or her time at the regular faculty research assistant rate to the account of the faculty member receiving the service. Other services available to faculty through the Library’s Research Assistants Program include assistance with the research assistant hiring process and training of faculty supervised research assistants.
In addition, the Library offers research instruction and training for faculty research assistants. Specialized instruction saves research assistants time and ensures that faculty members receive the results of thorough bibliographic research.
To take advantage of these services or to find out more information, please contact Tom Boone, 617-496-2106, Faculty Services Librarian.
