Library help is just an email, chat, text, or phone call away.
St. Kate's librarians provide online research assistance, Monday - Thursday, 10 - 4 pm and Friday 10 - 3 pm. When a St. Kate's librarian is not available, click the 24/7 chat link and get help from a librarian at another university..
You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to your question within 24 hours, Monday - Friday.
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.
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.
