Research Help Contact Information

  • Reference Desk Phone: (507) 457-5146
    We are able to answer quick questions about the library, library services and research help. If you have an in-depth research question we recommend speaking in person to a Librarian.

  • Send an email to Ask a Librarian
    During library research consultation hours, a librarian will try to respond within 24 hours. Please call the reference desk if you need immediate assistance or to ensure that your email has been received.

  • Visit us in the Library
    Librarians are on-call to assist you with research questions and to show you how to access the multitude of resources available in the library. For Library breaks and holidays please consult the Library's Hours web page.

  • Contact a Library Liaison
    The library department maintains an active library liaison program. Each academic department and most programs have a librarian serving as a departmental liaison. Each library liaison is available for research appointments.
