Help from a Librarian

Live Chat

A quick and easy way to ask questions when you need instant help. Whether you're in a computer lab, study room, or off-campus, just click the Live Chat button on this page or on the library homepage. 



A good option when the reference desk is closed. When the desk is closed the Live Chat link goes to e-mail. A librarian will reply to your e-mail during the next business day (the next time the desk is open).


Research Appointments

A good option if you want personalized research help with a librarian. Research Appointments are typically 30 minutes to an hour long. Groups appointments are welcome, just let us know how many students will be attending so we can plan to meet in a larger space if needed. Use the button on this page to request a research appointment. Research appointments are available seven days a week. 



Come by the Reference Desk to ask questions in person!

The Reference Desk is located on the second floor of the library.

Reference Desk hours are typically Monday-Thursday 8:00 am - 8:00 pm and Friday 8:00 am - 3:00 pm. The Reference Desk is closed Saturday and Sunday. 

Hours can vary during the summer and during holidays. Check the library website hours page for more up-to-date information.
