Library Liaisons: Find Your Personal Librarian

For Students
A personal librarian has been assigned to you based on your area of study. You can call upon that librarian for help with any of your research questions. Make an appointment or just stop in the library and ask for your liaison or your  personal librarian.

For Faculty
The library liaison is the primary library staff member responsible for communicating with your department about library collections, functions, and services. To place orders for new materials just contact your liaison.


Librarians are answering all reference questions online through our Chat service during the winter break. Chat with one of us during the hours listed here.

  • Monday-Friday: 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM
  • Saturday-Sunday: Closed

Our chat widget allows you to send your question by email during our off hours and a librarian will get back to you the next day.
