Help via Instant Messenger
A reference librarian is available to provide assistance via instant messenger during regular Skillman reference hours during the semester, and from 9am - 5pm during breaks. Add LafLibRef to your IM buddy list to chat in real-time with a librarian using AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) or Yahoo Messenger. If you do not have instant messenger software on your computer, just use the chat box over on the right.
This service is intended to offer brief reference assistance to Lafayette students, faculty, and staff. Those seeking more extensive research assistance are urged to make a PRA appointment with a librarian.
Individual librarians can sometimes be contacted via IM during weekdays at the screen names below.
