Library Services for Spring Semester 2021

ANNOUNCEMENTS (updated January 5, 2021)

The LLCC Library faculty and staff are here to help you! 

We will continue to primarily serve you remotely through the spring semester; generally, all library faculty and staff are available to help Monday-Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm. 

Remote Services

Your LLCC librarians are more than happy to help you with research in many remote ways. All you have to do is reach out!

Direct email: You can email an LLCC librarian and receive direct research assistance. You can also continue to make research appointments via email.  

Local chat reference and 24/7 chat reference: You can always receive help from a qualified librarian when you use the "Need Help?" button or other chat widget on the Library's website. You are guaranteed to chat with an LLCC librarian during the following hours.

Monday, 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Tuesday, 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Thursday, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

During other hours, you may or may not connect with an LLCC librarian, but you will always receive help from a qualified academic librarian from another college.

Schedule a virtual appointment: You can schedule a virtual appointment with any of the LLCC librarians by using the "Book a Research Appointment" button on the Library's homepage. Each librarian has different hours to provide you with scheduling options. Most appointments take place through Teams with screen-sharing capabilities.
