Students, were you aware that you can ask reference questions via Gmail Chat (or Gchat, Google Chat, or whatever else you might call it)?
You can. However, since this service is only available to the Hofstra Law School community, you will have to call or visit the library to get the library's contact information for Gmail Chat. (Or MSN, Yahoo!, AIM, etc. if you use one of those.)
Update: Because of the software we use, we will sometimes appear as offline or idle until you contact us. We can reply to your questions whenever there is a librarian at the reference desk (i.e. 9-9 Monday-Thursday, 9-5 Friday, 10-6 Saturday, and 12-8 Sunday).
