Welcome to Book a Librarian!
This free service allows you to reserve a personalized, one-on-one session with a trained professional librarian. This service is best used for complicated questions that require time beyond the general assistance available at the reference desk.
How it works:
Browse below for the topics that individual librarians can help you with, and contact the librarian that best suits your needs. If you don't see your topic available below, please contact one of us, and we will find a librarian for you!
Sessions are by appointment and are scheduled in advance. Appointments last roughly 30-45 minutes.
If you prefer contact my email or phone, instead of face-to-face, let us know and we can communicate that way instead.
Some things we are unable to help you with:
We do not provide medical, legal or business advice or opinions (although we can point you to reputable resources/services that can further help you)
We cannot type your documents
We cannot fix your personal devices besides basic troubleshooting
