Poster Description: Northcentral University Librarians recognize that research happens 24/7 and that finding the right time to schedule a live, one-on-one session with a librarian might be challenging for students. Recorded video research consultations provide flexible research support to students on their time by creating customized, 30-minute asynchronous recordings.
