Peer Research Tutors: Home


The Peer Research Tutors (or PRTs) are Meredith undergraduate students who work at the Learning Center, and are fully trained in peer-to-peer tutoring assistance as well as advanced research skills.  They can offer similar support as Meredith's research librarians, but from the perspective of a fellow student who has been in your shoes.

If you need some help with any aspect of the research process, sign up for a 30-minute appointment with a PRT, and they'll get you on the right track!  They can assist you with any of the following:

  • Deciding on a suitable research topic
  • Figuring out the best places to find information
  • Selecting effective search terms and strategies
  • Guiding you through searches of library resources
  • Evaluating possible sources to see what's most useful
