A CSUSM librarian is available by chat: 

Day of Week Times
Monday - Thursday
8:00AM - 9:00PM

All other times a non-CSUSM librarian will be picking up the chat and can help with general reference questions but may forward your information to a CSUSM librarian for further help.

If you require more in-depth help with your research, contact your subject specialist librarian directly by emailing them to schedule a Zoom consultation.
