Our librarians pride themselves on their accessibility. You can shoot us an email, give us a ring, swing by the reference office or even send us a tweet! Brand new this summer, you can now text questions to (410) 692-8874 or chat live with a librarian.
But sometimes you just need answers instantly. That’s why we’ve launched a new reference tool preloaded with the stuff people always ask. To get there from the library’s homepage, just click the “Ask a Librarian” link on the top of the left column. Start typing your question or keyword in the search box, and it will magically spit out an answer.
What if your question isn’t listed? Simply fill out the yellow box (pictured below) to submit your question to the librarian on duty. They’ll shoot you back an email in a jiffy.
But it does so much more than FAQs…think of it as your personal librarian service. Got a paper due on visual culture in Victorian England? Submit your question, and we’ll get right on it. Don’t worry about looking like a dummy— your question won’t be publicly visible, we swear!
Sounds pretty addictive, doesn’t it? Give it a try and let us know what you think!
