The public services desk is staffed whenever the library is open. Professional librarians and staff are available to assist you with your information needs.
Research Assistance Program

Significant research projects often require more assistance than can be given on-the-spot at the Reference/Circulation Desk. Professional librarians are happy to schedule individual appointments with you to aid you in these research projects.  To schedule an appointment contact one of these librarians: Kieren Bailey.  Then complete the RAP form and send it to the librarian with whom you will be meeting.  When librarians receive the form ahead of time, they can better prepare for your appointment.
