Library help is just an email, chat, text, or phone call away.

If St. Kate's librarians are online, you'll be asked for your name and question.

When we're not available, click AskMN and get research help from a librarian at another university.

Want to talk to a subject librarian in a specific field about your research? Fill out this form if you have a day in the future when you'd want to consult with a librarian and we can meet over Google Hangouts or via phone.

Your Subject Librarian Can Help

If you need research help in a certain subject area, or if you're a professor and you need a librarian to speak to your class, you need to find and contact your subject librarian.
