Research & Information Associates (RIAs)
What's a RIA?
Research and Information Associates — RIAs — are students who assist peers with finding and evaluating information. Swarthmore's RIAs:
- Help students get started with research projects
- Work with students to clarify topics, find sources, cite sources, and use library resources effectively.
- Connect students to reference librarians, SAMs, Writing Associates, and other resources for further consultation.
