Engagement Centers: Peer Research Assistant Program

Change in Service

As of March 11, 2020, Peer Research Assistants will be by appointment only, and appointments will take place online. We will reach out to you with details about how to connect once you schedule your appointment. If an online appointment would pose a barrier for you, please reach out to marcyk@msu.edu and we can find an option that works better!

Get help in your Neighborhood!

Library Peer Research Assistants (PRAs) staff four of the neighborhood Engagement Centers. You can schedule an appointment, or get help on a walk-in basis.

You can schedule up to 60 minutes. Click here to access appointment calendar.

What do PRAs do?

  • Help you find information for your research papers
  • Help you identify different kinds of materials, like articles, books, or whatever else you need
  • Understand citation styles and create citations
  • Get you connected to the library services that will help you most
