2021 Spring Semester: Reference and Virtual Chat Services

Welcome to the new semester!  Need help with research?  We are here to help!

There are many virtual ways you can connect to librarians for research assistance; chat service is one of them.  Please see below for current chat services hours:

  • Monday-Thursday: 9:00 am – 9:00 pm
  • Friday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm 
  • Saturday and Sunday: 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm

If you have any reference questions, you can email us at Library_Reference@stonybrook.edu

If you have any subject specific questions, you can email our Library Liaisons directly for assistance.  Our library liaisons will schedule a Zoom consultation with you if you need an in-depth research assistance.

There is no physical reference desk service at this time in the North Reading Room.  If you need to immediately contact a librarian, you can notify our staff at the desk and they will connect a librarian to assist you with your reference question.

Additional ways of contact can be found at the Ask A Librarian page.
