Even with campus closed, you can still access the library's collections 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 find the "Chat with A Librarian" icon in OneSearch, on our Research Guides homepage, and on the Library’s homepage.
You can speak one-on-one with a librarian through a phone or Zoom appointment. Get help narrowing topics, developing research questions, finding appropriate sources, citations, and more.
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.
