Even with a closed campus, you still have access to much of the library's collection and expert researchers (your faculty librarians)! Try one of these services:
Librarians are available 24/7 via chat reference. ARC librarians staff the chat service during regular business hours, and non-local librarians are available to answer questions during all other times of day (or night). You will see the Chat with A Librarian icon from OneSearch, on our Research Guides homepage, and on the Library’s homepage.
You can also leave a message at the Library’s Research Help Desk line at (916) 484-8458. Messages will be forward to an ARC Librarian who will be available to return your call within 24 business hours, Monday - Friday.
You can speak one-on-one with a librarian through a phone appointment. Get help narrowing topics, developing research questions, finding appropriate sources, citations, and more.
