Each of the three USM campus libraries happily provides assistance to students, staff and faculty members. Assistance ranges from technical/computer help to detailed help in researching topics. The Ask-A-Librarian chat reference service, available from the library homepage, provides both chat service and links to phone and email.

Reference hours vary by campus and time of year, but are generally provided 8:00 a.m. – Closing., Monday-Friday and during the afternoon and evening on weekends. Check with the Reference librarian on your campus for details and/or exceptions.
