Research Strategy Interviews

Do any of these describe your research project?

  • At a “dead end” on your family tree

  • Limited time in the Philadelphia area

  • New or unfamiliar topic

  • Too many collections, too little time

  • Tight deadline to meet

  • Working on a book, article, or dissertation

Friends of HSP at the Supporter level and above may schedule a one-on-one research strategy interview with a member of our knowledgeable library staff. This is a personal in-depth reference interview, which is more focused than a general library orientation.  Make the best use of your time and schedule an appointment today! 

To schedule a research strategy interview, contact our Development office at 215-732-6200 ext. 235 or email
