How can I get help with research and finding resources?

Chat Reference

The Los Rios Libraries offer 24/7 chat reference. You can chat with a librarian for guided help, and they can connect you with online resources to meet your needs. If you need in-depth research help, please request a research appointment and a librarian can set up a virtual call through Zoom to work with you further.
