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!  


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

  • 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 ( or 602-285-7549)
Christine Moore ( or 602-285-7454)
Mercedes Miramontes ( or 602-285-7335)
Michelle Dyer-Hurdon ( or 602-285-7823)

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: with: 1) your research topic, 2) the course, and 3) dates/times that would be good for you. We will get back to you within 24 hours (except on weekends).

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).
