Research Help

Live Chat with a Librarian 24/7!



A CSUSM librarian is available during the hours listed below.

Mon – Thur 10 am – 4 pm
Friday 10 am – 3 pm

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, you may contact your subject specialist librarian directly by emailing them and they will respond after the holiday break.
