INFORMATION FOR RESEARCHERS :: REFERENCE INQUIRIES
Chat with a Reference Archivist
This service is in the trial stages, and will be available during limited hours only, generally on Tuesdays and Fridays.
If MSSA_chat is offline, or if you have an in-depth question, please call the Reference Archivist at (203) 432-1744, or e-mail reference inquiry page.
The live chat reference option should be used for minor informational or procedural questions. Due to the volume of requests and staffing constraints, the reference staff can spend no more than one hour assisting patrons at a distance. Patrons who submit requests requiring more than one hour of staff time will be asked to do the additional work in person or to hire a research assistant.
