Do you need help finding the perfect resources for your research? Having trouble finding access to something? Or so overwhelmed you don’t know where to start? The School of Theology Library offers numerous ways to Get Reference Help from one of our librarians!
There are many different ways you can ask us a question about your research. First, come visit us at the reference desk, staffed with a librarian from the School of Theology Library. Someone is always sitting at the desk Monday through Thursday, 10:30am-3:30pm throughout the Academic Year. Do not hesitate to ask us a question anytime you pass by, or just say hi or ask what we’re doing! The reference desk is located near the main entrance of the library, around the corner towards the right, by the bound periodicals. Ask the circulation desk if you have trouble finding it. When someone isn’t at the desk, feel free to find a staff member and ask us a question.
If you prefer to ask us a question from the comfort of your own home, you can do that too! Call our reference phone directly during Reference Hours at (617) 358-2704. Fill out a Reference Request sheet to set up an interview or ask us a question. By setting up an appointment, you give one of the librarians time to do research on your question before so they can explain to you what sources are available. You call also email the entire staff at email@example.com at any time. After receiving your email, librarians will work on answering your question, and we will at least give an update within one business day of receiving your question. We even answer your questions at our Twitter page, so Tweet at us @BUSTHLibrary, if you prefer!
