The University Libraries invite you to AskUs!
Or, if you would rather chat live Monday through Thursday evenings from 6-10 p.m., go to Western Interactive Live Library Service [WILLS] .
If there is something you want to know: what library services we can offer you, questions about research, and anything at all. We’re here to make your university experience the best it can be. So be in touch.
Schedule an appointment with a librarian! To start research on your paper or project, sit down with one of the library faculty. Here’s a list of librarians by their Subject Specialty.
