Research & Instructional Services


Research assistance is available in person at our reference desk, located on the 2nd floor of the Odum Library.  See the Live Chat page for reference service hours and options.  You may also wish to schedule a research consultation with Emily Rogers, the Government Documents Librarian.

Research Consultation

The purpose of a consultation is to provide advice on the most effective research strategies and resources for a given project. This service is open to VSU students, faculty, and staff as well as non-VSU members of the community who need assistance locating government information.

Course-Related Instruction

Government Documents can provide a wide range of instructional services.  Librarians will work with faculty to develop course-specific instruction and to assist in creating workable library assignments. You can request a library instruction session by filling out our online form.

Research Guides

Government Documents can create a class handout or web guide of government materials on any subject you choose. Web guides provide a starting point for research by listing selected print and electronic library resources.
