Research Help 
See Research Help page at

We are not currently assigning liaison librarians to faculty, and are centralizing responses to faculty reference questions through; 6-1654. Please give a week’s notice if you need help. Same-day responses are unlikely. For more involved research help, we encourage you to have your RAs contact us. All service is remote.

Research Instruction 
Other than for currently offered credit courses, librarians’ ability to commit to single-session instruction will be determined as the semester progresses. To inquire further contact 6-1654 at least two weeks in advance of your need. All instruction will be remote.

Study Rooms 
Study rooms are unavailable due to the danger posed by virus buildup in indoor spaces with little air flow.
