Schedule an appointment to get individual time with a librarian. A reference librarian is like a tutor for finding and citing information. They can work with you on coming up with a research topic or question; finding credible and useful information on the web or in a library database; evaluating sources and citing them. If you need help right away, you can chat with a librarian 24/7. You can also email a librarian. Visit Contact Us for additional details. Your appointment with the librarian can be either online or on the phone. Once you have booked your appointment, a librarian will email you to confirm it. Appointments must be made at least 4 hours in advance. Please have your assignment with you at the appointment.
