Reference & Instruction Department

The primary goal of Reference & Instruction is to help students find and evaluate information. Whether you are working on a paper, a project, or a personal interest, reference librarians can direct you to the best information tools for your research need. The department also maintains a collection of reference sources (including online reference sources) to facilitate this research.

The Help/Ask a Librarian page has several options for contacting a librarian, including in person, phone, instant message, and e-mail services. You can also e-mail the subject librarian in your field directly -- here is the contact information for our different subject librarians.

For instruction on using the library, the ReSEARCH Station offers how to guides covering different aspects of conducting research. The reference librarians are also available to teach library instruction sections in CSU, Chico courses.  The for faculty page has information about this service. The Library Education Room (LER, room 226 in the library) is available for use in teaching library instruction sessions. Check here for LER room availability or here to request a library instruction session.
