Reference Queries

The Duty Librarian service is an enquiry and reference desk service operated by a team of Trinity's librarians.

The main functions include:

  • Reference assistance
  • Guidance on the use of information resources (catalogues, databases, and electronic journals)
  • Information on services offered by the Library (user record assistance, referrals to specialist staff)
  • Assistance locating material in the Library and beyond (using other libraries, Inter-Library Loans)

Please see Opening Hours for details of when the service is provided. Note that users are welcome to ask questions of all Library staff outside these hours, but should if possible use the Duty Librarian service for most queries.

You can also use the Chat with us button on the Library homepage, or contact your Subject Librarian directly.
