Research Assistance

One-on-one research assistance is available for all Naropa University students, faculty, and staff. Librarians are available to help you begin the research process or support your continued search for specific information.

Appointments can be conducted virtually or in person at the Allen Ginsberg Library on the Arapahoe campus. Appointments typically last for 45 minutes. You may schedule more than one research appointment throughout the course of a semester.

When creating an appointment make sure to use your Naropa email. We will respond with a confirmation email and any additional details.

We require 24 hours advanced notice for appointment requests and cancellations. To reschedule an appointment, cancel your current appointment and create a new one. Please contact us if you are running late; appointments are considered canceled after 10 minutes if it is a no-call no-show.
