Ask a Librarian!

Have you tried our email reference service? Perhaps it’s because you didn’t know about the service.

  • What is it? Ask a Librarian provides answers to your reference and research inquiries seven days a week. The service is provided by librarians from the Dewey Graduate Library.

  • How do you use it? You simply click on the Ask a Librarian links that are on the University Libraries’ web pages. You’ll get to a page that offers a simple form to complete and send.

  • How fast is the service? We will respond to your query as quickly as we can. Sometimes answers are received within minutes or hours. We strive to answer all queries within 24 hours of receipt.

  • What do others think of this service? We have been collecting statistics and comments about the service for over a year. Users are overwhelmingly satisfied with the service, and many have taken the time to write positive comments about the speed of the service and the helpfulness of the librarians. We have many repeat users!
