Working with a Tutor vs. a Librarian

As a student, you have access to both tutors and librarians when you need assistance with assignments.

Librarian

A librarian is an academic partner for Rasmussen College students, graduates, faculty, staff, and community members by providing research, citation, and instructional support.

Tutor

A tutor is either a Rasmussen College student or professional tutor who specializes in providing guidance in specific subject areas. You can meet with a tutor online, over the phone, or in person (depending on your proximity to a campus).
