News from the Library: Remote Assistance, Sustainability Books and Music Streaming

Ask a Librarian Remote Assistance

During this busy time of the semester, reference librarians can answer your students' (and your own) questions about research and library resources. When the day is just too busy to find time to get to the library, though, the Ask a Librarian chat reference service is the answer.

During regular reference desk hours (Monday-Thursday 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 6-10 p.m., Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Sunday 1-9 p.m.), librarians are available to answer online questions from students, faculty, and staff. From queries about finding journal articles or starting the research process, to support for citing sources and troubleshooting database access, Ask a Librarian is your go-to resource for remote help. Ask a Librarian is also available via text message during regular reference hours. Simply go to the library homepage at and click on the Ask a Librarian link at the top right of the page, or text us at (919) 335-5220.
