Though we will miss seeing you in person, there are still three ways to take advantage of our reference assistance and research consultations! We are currently offering reference service Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. During these hours you may reach us by:
As always, you may reach a reference librarian by telephone. If you call and get our voice mail, please be sure to leave a message with your name, contact number, and a brief description of your question or legal research issue. We'll return your call as soon as possible during our reference service hours.
Our email reference is still available to you. Send an email at any time, day or night, and we will receive it and respond as soon as possible during our reference service hours.
If you have a larger issue to discuss or if you'd like to schedule a specific time to speak with a reference librarian, you may request a research consultation using our web form. Let us know 1) the basic issue or topic of the consultation, 2) whether you'd like to conduct the consultation over the phone or via Microsoft Teams, 3) your contact phone number, and 4) the desired date and at least two start times (at least one hour apart) that would work for you.
If you submit your request during our service hours (currently Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), we'll get back to you within 12 hours to confirm your consultation time or work out a mutually agreeable alternative.
Research consultations may be scheduled to occur Monday through Thursday between 8:30 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., and, in some circumstances, on the weekends between 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
