Ask-a-Librarian email reference requests are just one way you can request assistance from GRCC Reference Librarians. You can always visit the Library & Learning Commons, call a Reference Librarian (616-234-3868), or contact your department’s Liaison Librarian directly.
Ask-a-Librarian questions are answered 70+ hours a week corresponding to the hours librarians work at the Reference Desk. Questions received after librarians close the Desk are answered on the next business day at the crack of o-dark hundred; sometimes, librarians even answer questions when the library is closed – but no guarantees!
Tell us what class the question relates to, more about the assignment requirements, where you’ve already searched and what terms you used, and anything else that will help librarians answer. Students and faculty tell us they like the ease of using Ask-a-Librarian, and that the answers are complete, helpful, and fast!
