Student Resources

To help students successfully transition to alternative modes of course delivery and access support services, we have compiled the following resources and guides:

Students in need of personalized assistance can reach library staff in a number of ways:

By phone: 315-866-0300 ext. 8394  or ext. 8272 or Toll-free: 1-844-GO4-HERK ext. 8394.

By text: 315-836-3796

By email

They can also be reached using LIBANSWERS by clicking on the “CHAT WITH US” box on the library's webpage. During non-business/off-peak hours, students can connect with a librarian for help using the “ASK US 24/7” featured on the left hand column of the page.

Please note that Interlibrary Loan has been temporarily suspended (per SUNY guidelines)
