Getting Research Help in Fall 2020

There are a variety of ways to get help remotely from the Howe Library reference librarians during this time.  Have a question?  Please ask us!

Contact me directly through e-mail (Patricia Mardeusz : patricia.mardeusz@uvm.edu) to ask a question or to schedule a time to "meet" virtually for an individual research consultation through Teams. Depending on your specific needs (e.g., not too complex), you may be able to schedule a "chat" session with me.

NOTE: If you want to schedule a "chat" with me individually, e-mail me so we can schedule a time and day. Then use the chat function in my "Profile" box on this page. 

If you need real-time help, use our Ask A Librarian chat service below to ask a question. Beginning August 31, 2020, Reference Chat hours are: Mon-Thurs, 9 am-6 pm and Fri, 9 am-4 pm.  
Note: If you see a message that says "chat unavailable"  during chat "open hours," try refreshing your browser. It may be that two librarians are switching off with one another.

Quick Links

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
Found a citation to a book or journal article that you need, but isn't owned by the library? Obtain the item through Interlibrary Loan.

Interlibrary Loan's (ILL) service for UVM affiliates will obtain materials (books, articles, book chapters) not owned by the UVM Libraries, from other libraries and document delivery sources. This service is free for UVM students, faculty, and staff. An article is delivered electronically and usually arrives within a few days. Book requests are generally filled within a week. 

If you are making a request for the first time, you will need to register for the service before making a request. View this brief video for instructions on how to register.

Document Delivery (materials owned by UVM Libraries)

UVM students may request scans of articles and book chapters from materials available in Howe Library regular print and microform collections. ILL staff will scan articles or book chapters and deliver them as a PDF to a user's Interlibrary Loan (ILL) portal. There is no fee. Copyright law applies. View this brief video on how to make a request.

Requests for ILL and Document Delivery may be placed online. Log in to your ILL portal using your UVM netid and e-mail password.
If you are making a request for the first time, you will need to register for the service before making a request. View this brief video for instructions on how to register.

Find more details and a link to the ILL and document delivery request forms. There is also a link ("ILL/DD" green button) on the Library homepage.

Curbside Pickup (How to....)

Monday-Friday, 8 am - 10 am, UVM affiliates (students, staff, and faculty) may pick up Howe Library books, books obtained through Interlibrary Loan, and media equipment and DVDs by appointment at a designated area adjacent to the Howe Library front entrance. Howe Library Circulation and Multimedia Services staff will communicate with borrowers via email (or phone) to locate requested materials and coordinate pickup and drop-off times.
