The UCB Libraries offer many forms online so that you can request library services quickly and easily. If you have any questions about these forms, please contact us in person at the Reference Desk or online through our Ask Us form.
Ask a reference question of the Engineering Library. A reference librarian will respond in a timely fashion. This works best for brief, factual questions. For more in-depth research questions, please come to the Library.
