A Tip

If you need immediate

assistance, a Librarian is often

available to answer questions

during the day.  The chat box

to the right of the screen that

says "Ask Alex" enables you

to have a chat session with

a Librarian.  If a Librarian is

unavailable, leave a message

with your email address

and we will get back to you

within one academic day.
