Research Assistance on Email and Chat from MSU Libraries

Ask A Librarian!As MSU researchers and students move online, so have the Mississippi State University Libraries and librarians.

You can now find expert research help without ever leaving your desktop or laptop. Connect directly to a librarian at MSU Libraries' Reference Desk by starting a chat session on the Ask-a-Librarian Web page. Now, from anywhere in the world—or anywhere in the library—you can ask a question or find the research you need. No time for chat? Send an email, and a research librarian will respond.

Also on the Ask-a-Librarian site you can find a subject-specific librarian, search for do-it-yourself research guides, or make an appointment (virtual or in-person) with a research librarian for general help or a specific project.

It's all just a click away! http://library.msstate.edu/askalibrarian
