Ask A Librarian

Need help with your research?  There are a number of ways to get in touch with your librarians:

  1. Send an email to: library@fielding.edu.  Be sure to give us a little background information so we can offer the best help possible.  
  2. Chat with us!  Click on the red chat bubble wherever you see it: in this guide, on the library website, and in FASTsearch.
  3. Give us a call: 805-898-2920 or 805-693-4373
  4. Need more in-depth help?  We can set up a virtual conference so you can view our screen and watch live examples.  

You will receive a response as soon as possible, usually within one Fielding business day. 

Exceptions are:

  • Occasional days when all librarians are away from the office. 
  • Fielding holidays

FAQs

Q: How do I go about requesting a book or journal be added to Fielding's library collection?

A: We are glad to look into all purchasing requests!  Please send an email to the library providing all relevant information.  If you are interested in obtaining a book to use in your course, please inform the library one term in advance.


Q: Does the library provide instruction to faculty as well as students?

A: Yes! Faculty, students and staff are all welcome to contact the library for instruction.  We are glad to assist you via web conference, over the phone, or via email.  Please email the library at library@fielding.edu to schedule an instruction session for you or your class.


Q: The library doesn't have a LibGuide related to my course, can they make one for me?

A: Absolutely! The library can make LibGuides for a particular course or based on a certain subject. Contact Abby, your instruction librarian, to discuss creating a guide and linking it to your Moodle page.
