Chat with us


About chat

We are pleased to offer you another way of getting in touch with your librarians!

Chat is usually available Monday through Thursday from 11am–5pm when the Library is open and class is in session during the fall & spring semesters. Sometimes chat may be unavailable due to a long queue or other library events.

Chat is always staffed by a John Jay librarian!

Types of questions you could ask a librarian over chat:

  • Where should I begin to look for information on a topic?
  • How do I find an article in Journal of Psychology, vol. 143, issue 6?
  • How do I find out which books you have by a particular author?
