It is not an idiom. The phrase "get help verbing" is not uncommon. The -ing word is a present participle acting as a modifier. In this case it answers the question "what kind of help?"

Could you explain to me the grammar point in the sentence below:
Why does the man go to see the professor?
... to get help locating some information for his paper.
I don't understand why we have "get+help+locating... here. It is an idiom, isn't it?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks. I get it.
