Don’t look now, but midterms are upon us! Do you need help with your research? Do you need help finding that elusive source? Come by the Rohrbach Library to get free research help from a librarian. Getting help isn’t limited to midterms, though. You can receive help all through the semester, even when finals arrive. Here is a brief summary of the ways to get help from a librarian:
Research Help Desk – The Research Help Desk is located on the first floor of the library near the Technical Support Desk and the Information Commons Desk. A librarian is available at this desk during these hours:
Monday – Thursday 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Friday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Sunday 2 p.m. – 8:00p.m.
Phone Help – Need a quick answer or can’t make it to the desk? Speak with the librarian on duty by calling 610-683-4165.
Appointments – You can also make an appointment with a librarian for more in-depth research assistance. Contact the Research Help Desk or your favorite Rohrbach librarian for more information or to set up an appointment.
Email a librarian – When classes are in session, e-mail your question to the librarians by typing it in at the top of the FAQ page on the Library’s website.
Text a librarian – Text your questions to (610) 915-8812. The service itself is free of charge, although standard text messaging rates do apply.
Ask Here PA – This is a 24/7 chat service in which librarians internationally can answer your questions. Click on the logo for “Ask Here PA-Connect to a Librarian” located near the bottom center of the Library’s website. This will take you to a site to enter a screen name, email address, and a full question.
Hope this helps! Good luck!
