Ask a Librarian

The Ask a Librarian service is a place to start your research, ask questions, and get subject-specific help from librarians. 


Visit a Reference Center

Bobst Library has a multidisciplinary reference desk on the first floor of the library where you can start your research, ask questions, and get subject-specific help from librarians. There are two main reference centers within the library, one devoted to the humanities and social sciences (first floor), and the other to business & government information and physical & life sciences (fifth floor).
