Peer Research Coaching

Peer Research Coaches are Texas State students trained to help our fellow Bobcats. We are undergrad students from a variety of majors and we work closely with librarians and staff for training on how to assist our fellow students. We are excited and ready to guide you in your research!

Support For Students

We can help you complete a variety of tasks, including:

  • Finding and narrowing a research topic
  • Locating scholarly sources
  • Using library databases
  • Managing your citations
  • And more - just ask!
