The above hours apply during semesters; J-term hours may vary.
While Research Help Desk student workers are available to help you, you may also request a librarian's assistance during these times if needed or preferred.
You can chat directly with a librarian or Research Help Desk student worker to have your library and research questions answered. Our chat is available during the following times:
Monday- Friday: 10am-4pm, 6-9pm
You can chat with us anywhere you see a yellow tab on the screen that says "Have a question?"
Working on a complex assignment? Have you hit a dead end in your research? We are here to help you! Click on the link above to set up a time to schedule a 30 minute one-on-one session with a research and instruction librarian!
Each of our research and instruction librarians work with specific departments. Not sure which librarian works with your area of study? Look at the list of liaison librarians to see who your librarian is!
