  • Ask us anything; answers within 24 hours (weekdays), usually sooner.
  • For in-depth questions (those that may take over 10 minutes to answer), we may suggest various research strategies or make a referral instead of providing a direct answer. Please note: the library does not provide financial, legal, medical, or veterinary advice.
  • Questions from University of Rio Grande students, faculty, staff, alumni, and registered community patrons are given priority.
  • To ask a question, send a message to the Reference Desk.
