Meet with us

Research librarians are happy to consult in-person or virtually with the Bates community on their research questions. To make an appointment with a specific librarian, please email or use the "Make an Appointment" button to contact us individually. You can usually find us at the Research Desk (first floor of Ladd) during the hours listed under our names, but we are available for appointments other times throughout the week.

For general questions, or if you do not know who to contact, don't hesitate to stop by the Research Desk, use our chat service, or email
