Librarian Assistance

During the Spring semester, Saint Mary’s Libraries and Writing Centers will offer virtual services to better support student and faculty needs. Students can consult with a librarian via phone, chat, email, and Zoom appointments. All library instruction sessions will be online. Writing Center consultants and peer tutors will be available for appointments via Zoom and email; for brief writing questions, students can contact the Writing Centers via email or telephone.

Feel free to send general inquiries via chat or email, or contact your liaison librarian for specialized assistance.

To start a chat, simply type your name in the box or click Start Chat to get started. Chat is monitored Monday, Thursday & Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Tuesday & Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. You can leave your question in Chat if a librarian is not available and someone will get back to you the next day.

Please note that the Libraries and Writing Centers will not offer face-to-face consultations or library instruction due to COVID-19 social distancing constraints.
