What kinds of questions can I text?

Use text for simple, quick questions of up to 160 characters, that can be answered in 320 characters or less. Research questions requiring lengthy or detailed responses should be sent using one of the other options listed at the Ask a Librarian page.

What are your hours?

What kind of response will I get?

Questions sent during our hours will receive a prompt response. Responses will come as two messages if they exceed 160 characters.

Questions sent outside of service hours receive an automated response and will be answered the next service day.

Text hours are the same as those for the Lied Library Research and Information Desk.

Text message reference service is not available when Lied Library is closed.
