Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Storrs Library staff is working remotely. We are responding to email and phone inquiries to our voicemail as staffing allows between the hours of 9 to 5, Mondays thru Fridays. When leaving a voicemail, we gently remind our patrons to include their best callback number in the message. We thank you for your patience as replies are delayed.
LIVE Virtual Reference Desk (video conferencing)
Throughout the COVID-19 Closure, Storrs Library is pleased to offer limited LIVE Virtual Reference Desk assistance to our patrons on Thursday and Friday mornings from 9 AM to 12 PM.
Please note that we have limited staff and capability to offer this service remotely. If the chat room is locked, it is because library staff is assisting another patron at the moment. Please send along to us your request by directly emailing Storrs Library or by completing the Contact Us Form on this page. In your message, please include the best time to reach you and we will do our best to respond to you as we are able.
We will post a link in this section of our website so you can drop into our LIVE Virtual Reference Desk (powered by Jitsi Meet) during the LIVE Virtual Reference Desk service hours. Learn more about Jitsi Meet on their website.
