The Library offers literally millions of sources for your research projects. In addition to our traditional books, you can remotely access our many databases and other licensed resources for newspapers, magazines, journals; research reports, hundreds of thousands of ebooks and more.
I check my email and phone messages several times a day during my normal work hours (9:00 am - 5:00 pm EST Monday through Friday). I also monitor discussion boards in online classes that I participate in, with the goal checking them at least once each work day.
If you need immediate help after my work day ends, during the weekends, when I am on vacation, or if I am not available when you call, contact the librarian at the Reference Desk, send our reference staff an email, or chat with a librarian online (likely not a JCC librarian, but helpful nonetheless) as outlined on our "Ask a Librarian" web page.
I look forward to working with you.
