  • Schedule an online or in-person consultation with a librarian at McConnell Library to access their calendar tool.

Students doing research at the Radford University at Carilion Library can find in-person support on the 5th floor of the Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital in Roanoke, VA. Reach out for research needs by contacting the staff below or using our Ask a Librarian chat.

We offer virtual and in-person research skills workshops at both library locations. Many workshops are drop-in instructional sessions that students from either campus are welcome to attend (please double-check with library staff). In addition to research workshops, we offer events and programming to provide instruction and entertainment throughout the school year.

Want to request a specific workshop? Contact Jennifer Resor-Whicker, Head of Research Services at McConnell or Mary Catherine Santoro, Clinical Instruction and Outreach Librarian at RUC.
