E-mail a Librarian

E-mail us reference questions at A response will usually be sent within 48 hours. Questions received after hours, on weekends or on college holidays will be handled on the next business day. 

Ask a Librarian 24/7 Chat Service

Get live help from librarians across the country 24 hours a day, seven days a week using our Ask-A-Librarian service! Try this when immediate research help is needed and none of the MSJC librarians are available. We'll follow up if you need more help.

Sample questions: It’s 3 am, and my topic has changed—how should I search for resources on the new one? How do I find this book in the library’s catalog?

Please note that since these are not MSJC librarians, they will not be able to let you know when your books are due or how to pay your library fines.
