Reference librarians are available to help all students with research questions and projects. Reference librarians can help you locate an individual source or provide research assistance for in-depth research projects. We're available for drop-in questions and longer research consultations by appointment. If you spend more than 15 minutes looking for something, ask a reference librarian!
Chat Service is offered during Reference Desk hours, and is available to AU and WCL currently enrolled students, faculty and staff.
Privacy: Pence Law Library values confidentiality. We may save a copy of your chat session for research or educational purposes, but will remove all identifying information.
