We welcome your questions, and we are dedicated to providing a high level of service to our patrons. If you have an in-depth question that you need help answering, the Library is here. 

Fill out our online form to ask a question or call the Reference Desk at (617) 623-5000 x2955, and a librarian will respond to your question by email or phone within 2-3 business days. When the librarian contacts you, they will set up a time to meet one-on-one to help answer your question.

The Book-A-Librarian possibilities are below. Please note that this list does not cover the full range of questions:

  • Resume formatting

  • Research help (how to use our databases, how to conduct research online, etc.)
  • Local History and Genealogy questions

If you are interested in booking an appointment with a librarian, please fill out the form and explain your inquiry with as much detail as possible. Our team of skilled librarians is here to help!
