Government Resources: Research Assistance

UCF Research Assistance with Government Topics & Publications

Walk-in Assistance

Assistance with government topic research is available at the UCF Library's Research & Information Desk during all staffed hours. The Research & Information Desk is on the entrance level (2nd floor), halfway back as you walk into the Library (Map).

Most questions can be handled directly by the staff at the Research & Information Desk. For more complex questions, the Government Information Librarian is accessible through the staff at the desk most weekdays during daytime hours, and the Government Information Librarian staffs the desk most Monday evenings from 5 to 8 PM. (Hours vary during breaks and summer semesters)

At times when the Research & Information Desk is closed (e.g., after 9 PM), directional assistance may be available from the staff at the Circulation / Book Return Desk at the entrance of the Library.

Remote Assistance

Brief government topic questions can be submitted electronically or by telephone (407-823-2562) to Ask A Librarian.

Appointments for Research Assistance

A Research Consultation is a one-on-one appointment with a librarian for extensive, in-depth research assistance. If you need more help than can be provided at the Research & Information Desk or from the Ask A Librarian service, you may sign up for a Research Consultation appointment.

Requests for an appointment should be submitted at least 2 full business days in advance, and more lead time is recommended.

Normally this appointment service is only available to UCF students, faculty, and staff, but the Government Information Librarian may be available to assist members of the general public with research questions related to information from the government document collections.
