Leatherby Libraries has a priority to provide reference services to the Chapman University community, which includes students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, special guests, and community card holders. The general public is welcome to visit the library and has access to open stack collections, the library catalog, and general reference assistance in the library.
Reference librarians are available at the reference desk on the first floor of Leatherby Libraries during hours posted on the Library’s Web site. Reference librarians assist users by demonstrating how to find resources, both print and electronic. Reference librarians may recommend appropriate research resources or search strategies and techniques.
For in-depth research assistance, students, faculty, and staff may be directed to request individual reference conferences: http://www1.chapman.edu/library/instruction/ircform.html
Quick email questions from students, faculty, and staff can be answered at: http://www1.chapman.edu/library/reference/quickrefmain.html
Or telephone reference assistance can be obtained at: 714-532-7714.
Please note that priority is given to in-person reference consultations and is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
