Connect with a Librarian
Montgomery College librarians are experts in conducting research. Each librarian has specialized knowledge in the resources and research methods of several academic subjects. We can help MC students, faculty, staff, or non-MC community users with any step of the research cycle: developing a topic, finding sources, evaluating sources, and citing sources.
You can get research help through text message, online chat, or booking an online appointment. If you know the librarian you'd like to work with, you can find their contact information below. View our online service hoursnew window.
