The CIIS Library offers one-on-one reference support for all active students, staff, faculty, and alums. If you would like to set up a reference appointment with a librarian, please use our Online Scheduler to select a day and one-hour time slot that is convenient for you. We offer appointments in-person, over the phone, and online using Big Blue Button.
Before submitting your request for an appointment, please take some time to fill out the "How can we help you?" section of the form. The more we know about what you'd like help with, the better we can assist you!
In order to be able to offer this service to the entire community, we ask that you be mindful and only request an initial appointment. Your librarian will work with you to schedule subsequent appointments, as required.
If you know you will not be able to make your appointment, please use the cancellation link in your appointment confirmation email, so others may have a chance to see a librarian at an earlier time.
You may also always send us questions via e-mail at askref [at] ciis [dot] edu.
