Librarians are on-call this summer!

On-call librarians are here to help you virtually and in-person all summer long! Just ask for a librarian at the Circulation Desk or text us at 914-873-1711, and a librarian will come meet you! You can also use our Chat 24/7 service for virtual help from a real, live librarian!

On-call Reference

  • Throughout the summer, Reference Librarians are available Monday-Friday 10am to 4pm.
  • Use the Text-a-Librarian service to summon a librarian: text 914-873-1711, your location, and your question, and a librarian will come assist you!

Virtual Reference

We continue to provide live, virtual reference help via the following services:

  • 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!
