Reference and Information Services

Members of the Lewis University community may submit reference questions via e-mail by choosing Ask a Reference Librarian Form.

Be specific when asking your question. Provide our reference librarians with as much information as you can including sources you may have already searched.

  • The reference desk is staffed during library hours.

    Call (815) 836-5306

  • There is no substitute for a live reference interview. Use this method only if you are unable to visit the reference desk in person or reach the reference desk at (815) 836-5306.

    Online reference questions will be viewed and answered during normal reference hours. This service is available to current students, faculty and staff of Lewis University.
