Peer Research Fellows

Get research help from fellow undergrads in the comfort of your House.

Overview

Peer Research Fellows (PRFs) are undergrads who can connect you to library services you might not even know exist and provide basic research help.

Each House neighborhood — River Central, River East, River West, and Quad — has a Peer Research Fellow who provides:

  • Personalized student-to-student research help
  • Referrals to librarians with relevant expertise
  • Weekly newsletters about library services, research tools, and more
  • Advice on issues regarding academic integrity
  • Weekly study breaks and other research related House events like Rise & Research and Write Night

Each Peer Research Fellow is trained and mentored by a librarian who is dedicated to their neighborhood and has expertise in research, teaching, and learning.
