Getting Help

There are several options for contacting the library for help:

  • Email:
  • Phone: 718-390-3401 (to leave voicemail messages only).

Chat service will be staffed by librarians M-F from 9am-5pm.  We recommend using chat or email to contact a librarian for help. 

Virtual research consultations will be available via Google Meet.  No special software is required to use Google Meet on your computer.  If you wish to use your android or iphone, you should download the Hangouts Meet app to your cell phone.  Once you contact us via chat, if more extensive research help is required, the librarian will send the user a link to join them in a Google Meet session.
