Get one-on-one help from a librarian by scheduling an appointment. Go to the Research Assistance Request Form, fill it out, then bring the resources you've already gathered along with all your questions about your research. The librarian will do some pre-searching from your request form and help answer your questions.
Our chat service can be accessed by the chat button at the bottom of your screen. You can chat with Doane's librarians during business hours. Outside of those hours, the chat button will become a convenient way to e-mail the librarians with your question.
