Make an Appointment with a Librarian

Make an Appointment with a Librarian (Virtual)

Appointments with Librarians are available for all students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as members of the community. Make sure you request time with a Librarian at least 1 business day before your desired appointment; you should get a response within this time frame. 

We understand that during these unique times there are new challenges people are facing. Our Librarians may have flexibility in their schedules, so please ask about alternative times if those above do not work for you!

NOTE: If you have something due in a day or less, drop-in virtually for research help! You may use the chat feature or email to contact librarians.

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 - 5:00pm.

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 Microsoft Teams meeting. If you have more questions about this, you may contact us in chat or email.

For more in-depth questions, reference consultations can be scheduled with the librarians for one on one assistance with research needs; use the Schedule An Appointment button located above.   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
