Our Reference Librarians offer research help in all subjects, through research appointments, course instruction, and by answering your questions at the reference desk, by email, over the phone, or through chat!

Have a question? We're happy to help!

There are many ways to reach out and get help from your librarians!

  • Stop by the reference desk! It is located on the main floor to your right as you enter the library. It is staffed by librarians and trained assistants who aid students, faculty, staff, and visitors with their research and help them make the best use of our library- and save time!
  • Call us at: 920-832-6752
  • Email us: reference@lawrence.edu
  • Working on a senior capstone, honors project, or just want some one-on-one help using library resources? Make a Research Appointment!  All students are welcome to schedule a research appointment with one of the reference librarians. These generally last about a half hour to an hour.
  • Submit the Ask a Librarian form.
