Guidelines for Using our Services

  • Our service is provided as generally first-come, first-serve, with priority given to patrons who are physically present at the desk when there are multiple patrons needing service simultaneously.
  • It is best to use our chat service to ask questions about library resources or library policies that can be answered in brief chat responses or questions about how to get started with your research; for questions requiring lengthy, detailed responses, we recommend you consider using one of our other options if possible.
