User Research Requests

Research Requests allow users to ask administrators for resource searching help. Users will be instructed to fill out a form with research details and then administrators can then help them find suitable resources. This can be done by either providing them a list of suitable resources, or by sending them links to searches or collections to help them get their search started.

This can be a fairly time-consuming option for administrators but it can be a good way to help new users into the system by allowing them to ask questions about the searching. As an administrator you can then guide them with search keywords and resource recommendations which will train them to become more independent.

This is an optional feature available for all users on the system or as a group configuration.
