Longer, more complicated question? Emailing the libraries is a great way to get the answer! Questions and answers can both be written in more depth than a chat session allows. Simply use one of these forms to send us your question(s) and we will get back to you ASAP with answers!
Maybe we've already answered your question! Are we psychic??? No, but is it possible that someone else may have asked this question before. If so, the answer to it or a similar question may already be in our Frequently Asked Questions! Check it out!
Is your question long, complicated, or really subject specific? Assigned a research paper and can't seem to find the articles you need?
Then contact a Subject Specialist Librarian directly. They will be happy to work with you 1-on-1 to get the answers and information you need!
There's a Subject Specialist Librarian assigned to each department/program and they are ready and willing to work with you via email, phone, online chat, or one-on-one videoconference. All you have to do is ask!
