RESEARCH SUPPORT

All of our research librarians are eager to help you however we can, and there are lots of different ways for you to get in touch:

  • CHAT. Available 24/7. Access on our homepage or https://libguides.holycross.edu/ask.

  • RESEARCH DESK. Drop by the desk in the Main Reading Room to speak with a Library Research Assistant  (6-8pm Sun, 10am-4pm and 6-8pm Mon-Thurs, 10am-1pm Fri). You can also ask for basic help at the Circulation Desk. 

  • EMAIL. Contact your preferred librarian, or, for the quickest response, use our centralized e-mail account, libref@holycross.edu. For technical issues: Helpdesk-request@holycross.edu, and mention that it is a library related issue. If you can, CC libref@holycross.edu

  • PERSONAL RESEARCH SESSIONS. We are conducting research help sessions both remotely and in-person. Appointments are available throughout the week, including some evenings after the fall/spring break. Students or faculty may schedule an appointment at https://libguides.holycross.edu/ask

If you have any questions, or there is anything else we can do to help, get in touch!

You can chat, e-mail libref@holycross.edu, or call 508-793-2642.
