Options:

  • In-Person: Stop by the Reference Desk in the Thomas Jefferson Library.  No appointment is necessary, but you may have to wait if the librarian is already working with another patron.
  • Telephone: If the librarian at the desk is available, they will assist you via phone.  If there is no answer, please try again when the librarian is not engaged.
    Thomas Jefferson Library: 314-516-5060

  • In-Depth: If you need more extensive information, set up an in-depth Research Consultation.  You can make an appointment to meet with one of the librarians in person, consult via e-mail, or consult using online chat (at a pre-arranged time).
