  • The library catalog easily connects you with books at other libraries. Books from our library are listed first, and then books from other libraries. Simply pay attention to which library owns the book. If it's not us, click the title of the book, which takes you into a screen where you can request it from another library. You'll be prompted to sign in with your Gustavus user name & password (if you're not already signed in) and you can easily place the request.

I love meeting with students and faculty to talk about your research, including any issues you have - or even if you just want to brainstorm. There are lots of ways to reach me. Email me with questions or use the old fashioned phone number below to contact me. Or stop by during my reference/office hours: Wednesdays from 2:30 - 4:30 and Thursdays from 1:00 - 2:30. I'll either be in my office (Library 108B on the lower level) or the reference desk on the main floor.
