Ask a Librarian

Visit a librarian at the Library's 3rd floor Reference Desk! No appointment necessary - just drop by, call (808) 455-0379, or email anytime you need assistance! Librarians are trained professionals who will help you find information for your research needs and will teach you how to use the Library and its variety of resources effectively.

During the Fall and Spring Semesters, the Reference Desk is staffed 8:00 am - 7:00 pm Monday-Thursday, and 8:00 am - 4:30 Friday.
