Research Consultation: Home

Get Virtual Help from a Librarian

While the physical library remains closed, in-person, face-to-face library services are not available at the Library Service Desk. But, that does not mean that library services are closed! With the needs of our patrons in mind, library staff continues to provide information and referrals to meet our patron’s needs.

We have multiple ways to contact Librarians, including chat, text, email, and video conference. We can aid patrons in navigating our catalog, databases, and research web guides to satisfy their research needs. If more research help is needed, a reference consultation with a librarian can be scheduled.   During this time you can contact Librarians :

Chat: Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 8:00pm. 

Email: Monday - Friday. Any emails sent after 5:00pm Friday may not be answered until the following Monday. 

Video Conference: Please make a reference appointment to schedule a video conference. If you have more questions about this, you may contact us in chat or email.

Virtual Research Consultation Services

Research assistance to users is available by email, chat or by appointment. For drop-ins, outside of scheduled reference consultations, librarians are available on chat Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.  For more in-depth questions, reference consultations can be scheduled with the professional librarians for one on one assistance with research needs through our Make an Appointment with a Librarian form.   Additionally, through our website, users have access to our research Subject Guides, which have both general and subject specific hints and clues to help our users get started with their research, at all times.

Reference consultations can help with:

  • Selecting the best resources for your project
  • Accessing and navigating electronic resources
  • Developing search strategies
  • Discovering and locating primary source materials
  • Searching the web for relevant and reliable information
  • Senior seminar/Thesis projects
  • Locating materials for a literature review
