Guidelines for Ask a Librarian (e-mail)

This service is intended to answer up to three of the following kinds of questions:

  • Brief, factual, or statistical information
    • the address of the White House
    • the correct spelling of a word
  • Information about the materials owned by the Libraries

Librarians respond to most questions the same business day.  For questions that involve more research, please come to the Reference Desk in McDermott Library.   For the times when the Library is open, see Library Hours.
