Get to know your librarians!

You may contact any librarian to request an individual meeting. I recommend getting to know the librarian that is affiliated with your school.

  • Not sure who to contact? You can email for general questions. You will receive a response during regular business hours.

Research Help!

Drop-in research help is not available until restrictions are lifted.

Research appointment: If you need in-depth help with your research, schedule an appointment to meet with a librarian remotely.

Not sure if a research appointment is what you need? If you answer yes to one of the following, then go ahead and schedule an appointment or email the librarian for your School!

  • Feeling stuck with your research?
  • Having difficulty finding a source(s)?
  • Want to make sure you're on the right track with your research?
  • Need a sounding board for your research idea?
  • Just enjoy talking to a librarian? (Who doesn't??)

Off-Campus Assistance:
You may contact an individual librarian if there is a specific subject area you need assistance with. You may also email if you're not sure who to contact.

You can get more immediate assistance from a librarian by clicking on the blue “Questions?” button at the bottom of the library’s web pages.
