Online Reference Service Policy:

Patrons may submit reference questions through email and expect an answer or a reply (if no answer can be obtained) within a 24 hour period. Acceptable questions would include requests for brief factual information or assistance with finding and using appropriate resources. Unacceptable questions would include requests for all the research necessary to do a project or research paper. This service is available 7 days a week when the library is open. It will not be available during periods when the library is closed.

  • For live rather than online help, give us a call at (252) 399-6502 (x6502 if on campus), or drop by Hackney Library and ask us in person when the library is open.

If you need assistance when the library is NOT open, try NCKnows: 24/7 Reference Help, which provides round-the-clock assistance via chat from librarians across the U.S. using Hackney Library resources.
