Cathy: Virtual Reference Saturday, TODAY from 2-6 pm

Good morning:

I’ll be answering questions from home (virtual reference) on Saturday, April 6th (TODAY!) from 2-6 pm (email, chat, or Zoom). I’ll be monitoring the Reference@ithaca.edu account so you can use that account rather than my email. It is best for longer research questions.

Access the chat box in the right tab of the library’s homepage: https://library.ithaca.edu/ It is best for quick questions.

You can use this form to set up an appointment with me anytime https://library.ithaca.edu/forms/appt_request.php
