With midterms upon us, there are many ways to get help from a librarian:
In-person at the Reference Desk
Reference Librarians are available Monday-Thursday 10am to 6pm, and Friday 10am to 4pm. Drop by the Reference Desk on the first floor (room 1010H) and say hi!
Chat 24/7: Use the Chat 24/7 service to message with a librarian 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We’re not bots! Librarians from Purchase College monitor the chat service during in-person Reference Hours. Outside local staffing hours, a national cooperative of librarians will help you 24/7, even when Purchase College Library is closed!
Text a Librarian: Text your question to (914) 873-1711 and a Purchase College librarian will respond within 10 minutes during regular reference hours.
Zoom-By-Appointment: Schedule an individual zoom appointment by emailing your subject liaison librarian. Or, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll connect you to the right librarian. Include your question and preferred meeting times in the email.
Email a Librarian: Email your question to email@example.com. You’ll get a response from a Purchase librarian either the same-day or the next business day.
FAQs: Browse our Frequently Asked Questions for research tips, help accessing articles from off-campus, and general information about library services.
