Research Help

Research Coach

Have you been assigned a research assignment and have no idea where to begin?  Are you overwhelmed by all the information you’re finding on your topic?  We’re here to help! 

Two PC Librarians serve as Research Coaches that will assist you with challenges students often face when doing research, such as:

Research Coach
  • Framing your research question
  • Choosing where to look for resources
  • Using resources in the most effective way possible
  • Knowing how to evaluate different sources
  • Citing your sources correctly

Your Research Coaches are Ann Roselle ( or 602-285-7549) and Christine Moore ( or 602-285-7454).  You may stop by the Reference Desk and ask for one of them, or you may make an appointment below.


Notice: Our Research Coach service is unavailable during the summer.
It will resume on August 25, 2014. Until then, please visit our Reference Desk on the main floor of the library.


Can’t find a time that works for you?

If our coaches are not available at a time that is convenient for you, please send an email to Ann Roselle ( with: 1) your research topic, 2) the course, and 3) dates/times that would be good for you.  Ann will get back to you within 24 hours.

Research Coaches help with research only.  For writing assistance, please see a writing tutor in the Success Center or submit your paper to an online tutor (Smartthinking).
