Library help is just an email, chat, text, or phone call away.
St. Kate's librarians provide online research assistance, Monday - Thursday, 9:00am-5:00pm and Friday 9:00am-3:00pm. 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.
You can get research help through our 24/7 chat as well as:
In-person: At our Research Help Desk: Mon-Fri 11:00am-3:00pm
Zoom Reference: Mon-Thurs 9:00am-5:00pm; Friday 9:00am-3:00pm at drop-in zoom room
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 in-person or via Zoom. Evening and weekend appointments are available, too.
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.
