If you have a question about library collections, services, or resources, our reference librarians are here to help.
There are many ways to connect with a reference librarian—visit the Reference Desk on the first floor of Stapleton Library for face-to-face support, chat with us,
send us a question, or just give us a call—whichever method you choose, you’ll get expert assistance from professional librarians who will assist you with questions from the
simple to the complex.
All of our librarians are specialists in various subject areas. To find out which librarian is a specialist in your subject area, visit the Subject Specialists list, where
you can find contact information, send an email, or even make an appointment (when times are available) for a comprehensive consultation on your library research process.
Questions about borrowing policy, your library account, and course reserves can be directed to our Circulation Desk at 724-357-2340. If you need help with
library technology, don’t hesitate to visit our Technology Services department.
