Get Quick Answers to Quick Questions

We can help you get started with some ideas and places to begin if you have a big project. The answer you'll receive will be a brief factual answer to a specific question or a short list of sources that you can use to further explore your topic. These sources can be both internet and traditional library resources.

More complex questions are best handled by a personal visit to the Library for Reference assistance.

We try to answer email questions within two business days.
