Visit Beeghly Library

A reference librarian is on duty most hours that the library is open, except Saturdays. An in-person interview often leads to a more thorough response to an in-depth question.


If a library staff member is not available to respond to your questions, try the live online service, KnowItNow, which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

KnowItNow is provided by the State Library of Ohio and includes an academic service. Please select Heidelberg and fill in the form to get help from an academic librarian.
