Ask-A-Librarian

Have a question? Just ask a Librarian!

There are several ways you may ask your reference questions:


IM questions are taken on a first-come-first-served order during Library open hours. There may be a short wait if the librarian is already helping someone in person, on the phone, or in another IM session.

Reference librarians are happy to answer questions about renewals, existing holds, or books you have returned in addition to other, more abstract, queries.
You may also call the circulation desk for account specific inquiries (408) 354-6891.
