Online Chat, “Ask: Chat with a librarian”
This chat tool connects you to librarians who can point you in the right direction. Just look for this icon on your library website landing pages.
In-person and Virtual Librarian Consultations
You can make an appointment to discuss resource strategies and resources with a librarian. You can also meet with librarians by looking up the appropriate library and contact information. Another great way to get in contact with a librarian for support would be to email them with your questions or research concerns.
