Library Guide for Faculty in China

Library Liaisons for SNU and Sias Programs

Contacting Forsyth Library

Forsyth Library has a research help service, called Ask a Librarian, that can provide timely assistance in the mornings and evenings, given the overseas time difference. To see the current research help hours look at the black sidebar on the library website.

Refer to the time table below, to know when the live chat service is most likely to be available on the library website. (In Hays, KS CDT is observed between March-November and CST is observed between November-March.) When the live chat is not available, you may need to submit a question via email or use the contact form below. Your questions will be answered as soon as possible, but keep in mind that it may be the next business day.
