Remote Access to Library Resources

Options for Remote Research Help

You have several options for getting research help from a Subject Librarian.  Librarians can help you refine a research topic, provide guidance on finding and citing resources, and navigate the library's online resources:

  • Email your librarian:  librarians can answer simple or detailed questions via email.  Librarians are assigned to every academic subject at Bucknell.  
  • Chat with a librarian:  if you have a quick question, you may chat with a librarian during regular library hours.  Chat boxes are on every subject page, as well as the main library page

    Chat will be available:
    • Monday - Friday: 10am - 5pm 

  • Make a research appointment:  Librarians will have time blocked out on their calendars for research appointments.  These can be conducted via videochat, or telephone. 
  • Information about access to Special Collections/University Archives services and resources, including digital resources, is available on the Special Collections/University Archives guide.  For research inquiries and assistance requests, email:, or telephone: (570) 577-3101.

If you have general library questions, you may contact the Library Services Desk at (570) 577-1462, or via email at
