The Ask-a-Librarian service is provided by Brooklyn College Library in collaboration with QuestionPoint and OCLC.

If you were hoping to chat with a librarian rather than send an email, it appears that a librarian is not available to chat right now. Please follow the instructions below and send us an email instead.

To ask a question, type the requested information below and then click Submit. The librarian's responses will be sent to your e-mail address.
