CHST 100: Advanced Writing for Research in Social Sciences

Hello from Your Librarian

Welcome from Your Librarian

Hi Students, my name is Melanie Sellar and Child Studies 100 is one of the courses I'm supporting this quarter. 

I'm the Assistant Dean for Learning & Engagement at the University Library, and I also specialize in sociology, education, and child studies. I've been with SCU for six years, but I have been living and working in California for the last fifteen years. 

This academic year I am zooming with students and teaching workshops in support of your coursework and assignments. I'm ready to support you through email or one-one-one Zoom sessions. Don't hesitate to reach out if you are struggling to find materials.

Ways to Contact Me

You can reach me through email at for help online or to schedule a Zoom appointment.

My policy is to respond to your emails within 24-48 hours. If it's a quick question, I may respond even sooner, whereas more complex answers will likely take the suggested timeframe (and if it's received over the weekend it will likely take until Monday). 

You can also use our 24/7 chat service, embedded throughout this guide, for pressing questions that are time sensitive.
