The first floor Research and Information Desk with the big ASK US sign is staffed for most of the hours the library building is open. Stop by with your question.
Use the Ask Us! chat box that will appear on the right side of this screen to get quick help with simple questions: How late are you open? Where can I get this book? How do I renew my stuff?
Individual Research Appointments (IRA's) for Undergraduates: When you click on the Ask Us button above, look for a link that allows you to schedule online with the next available librarian when a consultation spot is open. The number of appointment slots is expanded at peak times during Fall and Spring semesters, when all reference and instruction librarians staff IRA's (one-on-one, hour-long consultations). Watch for a notice of inclusive dates.
