Ways to Work with a Librarian

The Tredway librarians are here to help you! We have several different ways for you to communicate with us; read below to see which way works best for your needs.

Research Help Desk

During the school year, general research assistance is available in person at the Research Help Desk.  The desk is staffed by student research assistants with librarians always on call for more complex questions (or simply if you would prefer to speak with a librarian).  The Research Help Desk is co-located with the Circulation Desk on the 2nd floor of the library, with assistance available during the following times:

Monday-Thursday: 10am-4pm
Friday: 10am-2pm

The above hours apply during semesters; J-term hours may vary.

Chat with Us

You can chat with us anywhere you see a yellow tab on the screen that says "Have a question?"

You can chat directly with a librarian or Research Help Desk student assistant to have your library and research questions answered. Our chat is available during the following times:

Monday-Thursday: 10am-4pm
Friday: 10am-2pm

You can chat with us anywhere you see a yellow tab on the screen that says "Have a question?" You will find this on most library web pages. If you don't see this on a given page, the chat box is also available from the library's homepage.
