Meeting with me during the COVID-19 shutdown

I am currently working from home but remain available for any library related questions you might have. I am online between 9:30am and 5:30pm, Monday to Friday, with a break from 12 to 1pm. I can be reached by email or through the library's chat service.

I'm also available for online interactive research help using the Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or WebEx. No question is too small and I'm happy to help. You can email me or use the libraries' appointment booking service to make an appointment.
