Chat with a Librarian

If chat is unavailable, you can send us an email instead.


RVCC Library Chat services can be used for a variety of simple research questions, such as:

  • General library information like hours, contact info, or policies
  • How to find books, articles, and other sources on a specific topic
  • What database to use for specific assignments

For in-depth research questions, it might be better to Email a librarian or schedule to meet with a librarian.

Chats may be terminated and the user banned for using inappropriate or rude language, harassment of any kind, or repeated off-topic comments. Read the full Virtual Reference Services Policy.

Meet with a Librarian in-person


Schedule a daytime appointment in-person with a librarian.

Appointments are not available for evening hours between 5-9PM but a librarian will be available at the Reference / Information desk to meet with you. Just come in.

If you cannot come to the library during the scheduled In-person Reference hours, you can Live Chat with a librarian throughout most of the day, Monday through Friday. If we are not available on chat, email us at and someone will get back to you with an answer or to set up a time to chat or meet.
