Research Assistance - Fall, 2020

Research assistance will be available from anywhere live via Chat and Zoom 60+ hours a week, Monday-Sunday.  You may chat with a librarian through the pop-out link on the library home page:  Through chat, librarians can share your screen and guide you through searches of relevant library resources, assist you with citing your sources, recommend online databases, etc.  Walk-up reference services will not be available.  HOWEVER, if you are in the Axinn Library - or anywhere else in the world - you may chat live with a librarian by visiting the library home page and clicking on the LIVE CHAT button on the right side of the page. 


You may make a research appointment by visiting:  Appointments are one-on-one and enable you to a conversation about your research and clarify your information needs.  If the reference desk is closed, you may text or email your research questions to our reference librarians 24/7 by visiting:  We will respond to your inquiries ASAP when the reference desk hours resume.
