Reference Service Hours - Summer 2017 (May 22 - September 1)

Basic questions about the library and resources can be answered by the Circulation Staff at the Checkout Desk on 2nd floor. In-depth research questions that require the expertise of a librarian will be handled by our team of librarians. They are readily available on an on-call basis for the summer months.

Contact a librarian during the hours listed below by:

  • Calling us: 616-526-6307; your call will be directed to the main Circulation Desk and they will direct you to a librarian.
  • Email: fill out a form and submit it; a librarian will respond within a couple of hours. (Wait will be longer on the weekends).
  • Chat with a librarian: Click "Live Chat" on our homepage when it's activated. (Chat reference hours will be sporadic over the summer).

Monday - Friday 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
