Ask a Librarian

There are several ways to contact a librarian for assistance, even when it is not possible to talk face to face with one at the Reference Desk. Other options include phone, email, 24/7 Librarian Chat, Skype, Research Assistance Program, and the Blackboard Ask a Librarian Discussion Board.. For details on these options, click on the relevant tab.

A member of the Reference team is at the Reference Desk  every hour we are open. If you are on campus, just come on into the library, step up to the reference desk, and we will be glad to assist you. If you prefer, send us an email,library@bellevue.edu,or give us a call, 402-557-7313. You can also call to set up an appointment if you need to spend lengthier one-on one-time with a librarian.
