Shapiro Science Library: Reference Services

Walk-In Reference

For in-person assistance with science reference questions ask at the Graduate Library reference desk on the second floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library, or contact the appropriate science librarian for an appointment. Help is also available via phone, email, and instant messaging through the Ask A Librarian reference service.

Research Consultations

We offer research consultations for individuals or small groups by appointment. Consultations can be anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the question. To set up an appointment, email the Science Librarian whose subject area most closely matches your topic with a brief description of your research and scheduling requirements.

Science Print Reference Collection

Our more heavily used reference volumes have now moved to the reference collection located in the reading room on the second floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library. The remaining print reference materials can be found in the Current Periodicals Room on the third floor of Shapiro. Check the Library Catalog Search if you're looking for a science reference book that's not where you think it should be. Many science and engineering reference sources are now available online.
