Research Coach

Notice: Our Research Coach service is unavailable during the summer.  It will resume on August 24, 2015.  Until then, please visit our Reference Desk on the main floor of the library. 

Have you been assigned a research assignment and have no idea where to begin?   Are you overwhelmed by all the information you’re finding on your topic?  We’re here to help!  






Three PC Librarians serve as Research Coaches that will assist you with challenges students often face when doing research, such as:

Research Coach
  • Framing your research question
  • Choosing where to look for resources
  • Using resources in the most effective way possible
  • Knowing how to evaluate different sources
  • Citing your sources correctly

Your Research Coaches are:
Ann Roselle (ann.roselle@phoenixcollege.edu or 602-285-7549)
Christine Moore (christine.moore@phoenixcollege.edu or 602-285-7454)
Mercedes Miramontes (mercedes.miramontes@phoenixcollege.edu or 602-285-7335)
You may stop by the Reference Desk and ask for one of them, or you may schedule an appointment above.

Can’t find a time that works for you?

If our coaches are not available at a time that is convenient for you, please send an email to Ann Roselle (ann.roselle@phoenixcollege.edu) with: 1) your research topic, 2) the course, and 3) dates/times that would be good for you.  Ann will get back to you within 24 hours.

Research Coaches help with research only.  For writing assistance, please see a writing tutor in the Learning Commons or submit your paper to an online tutor (Smartthinking).
