What is Access Services?

Access Services is the department that staffs the Library Service Point. We can answer general ready reference questions and provide assistance locating a book or article. Our staff can help with questions about interlibrary loan. We check out materials and assist with the public computers and printer. We triage questions and refer to other library staff members as needed. Please ask us if you have a question or need assistance.  We are here for you and love to help!
