The staff at the O'Grady Library is committed to giving you access to high-quality information resources and helping all students, faculty and staff to find and use those resources effectively.  We offer services ranging from individual and group research consultations to class sessions and research guides to help you connect with the information you need.

Do you need help with your research?

Research consultations

You're not alone!  Librarians are available to help you at any time during your research process, whether you are in the beginning stages or near the end and need just a couple more sources to strengthen your thesis or explore an opposing point of view.  We can also help you with tasks like narrowing your topic, managing citations, or evaluating sources.  Fill out a quick form to schedule a research consultation.

24/7 Chat service

The O'Grady Library participates in a chat service staffed by a network of librarians across the nation.  Clicking the 24/7 Chat: Ask a Librarian link will connect you to a librarian 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The librarian will try their best to answer your question on the spot, but can also refer your question back to the Saint Martin's librarians for additional help.

Drop-in research help

The reference desk in the O'Grady Library Information Commons is open and staffed during all library open hours in the fall and spring terms.  Mornings, evening and weekends, you'll find our fabulous student employees at the desk.  They'll be happy to help you find a book or video, give you a hand with the printer or figure out how to scan an unruly microfiche.

Library staff are on hand to provide drop-in research help during peak times:  Monday - Thursday, 11 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
