About Reference Services

The Reference Department in the J.D. Williams Library has reference librarians with subject expertise to assist with reference and research questions, individualized research help, and instruction in the use of library resources. We can provide help using the library catalog, databases provided by the library, microform and media machines, as well as assistance searching and evaluating web sites. These services are provided both in the library and remotely by telephone, email, or through IM chat.


The Reference Desk is located in The Commons on the first floor next to the print station. Reference Desk Services include:

  • Walk in services available for quick or complex questions.
  • Schedule a one-on-one consultation with a Subject Librarian.
  • Phone the desk with questions, (662) 915-5855.
  • Email a librarian.
  • Chat with a librarian
