Do you have a question? Do you need help with your research? Steely Library offers several ways for you to get in touch: 

Our Research Help service is staffed by librarians throughout the week to answer quick questions and to provide tips and strategies on finding and evaluating information resources. Research Help drop-in services are located on the 3rd floor Public Services Desk and available Monday–Friday, 11am to 4pm.

Librarians from Steely Library are available to answer questions Monday-Friday 11am-4pm. Outside these hours, you can still use our service to chat with knowledgeable librarians 24/7!

Research consultations are for in-depth discussions about research questions, finding and evaluating sources, and effectively using library resources. Steely librarians offer consultations in-person or over Zoom. If possible, we ask that appointments should be made 48 hours in advance. Schedule your appointment today!
