Librarians and professors in Christian colleges and universities can work collaboratively to help reduce the stress and anxiety that student researchers experience as they carry out their undergraduate or graduate research. This collaboration focuses on understanding the affective dimension of the research process and relating the research process to St. Paul’s list of nine fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). The student researcher who can view the research process within the frame of these nine dispositions will have additional resources with which to integrate God’s presence in the research process, thereby reducing research anxiety.
