Research Help
Librarians and staff are available by email, chat, phone or in person to answer research questions or to provide help with using online resources. Chat services are available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For general questions, use our Ask A Librarian service. To contact your subject librarian email them directly.
Research Guides are also available. These guides are divided by subject and can help you navigate the best ways to find articles and research related to your class. We have created a Teaching and Learning Guide to help instructors move their courses online, and provide information about all the many ways the Libraries can be a part of their instruction
Teaching and Instruction
Librarians will continue to provide teaching support by collaborating with instructors. We feel it is especially important during this time of change that instructors encourage their students to reach out to the Libraries for research help. The Libraries also offer online instruction modules. To learn more about these services visit our Library Instruction webpage.
Access to Textbooks 
K-State Libraries can scan chapters from our textbook collection and request chapters from other libraries as well. To maximize your chance of success, please request only those portions of books that you need.
To place a request for a chapter of a textbook, use the Interlibrary Loan request form. We will work to get you a scanned copy either from our collection or another library.
Returning Materials
You are welcome to return items to us at any of our library service desks or book drops or by mailing the item to us. A list of book drop locations and our mailing address can be found on our Returning Library Materials page.
