Ask A Question

Ask a Librarian a Reference Question allows Santa Clara Library patrons to send short reference questions to the library using the Internet.

What is a reference question?

A reference question can be about almost anything, but should lend itself to a short answer of factual information such as a statistic, fact, address, date, or name.

For example, you could ask:

  • Where are the corporate headquarters for Delta Airlines? Who are the current officers?
  • Which Shakespeare play has the quote “study is like heaven’s glorious sun?”

How does it work?

Use the form to ask short, factual questions. A librarian will send a response to your online question to your e-mail address, normally within 48 hours. For more involved questions, or if you are unsure how to state your question, please contact our library by calling 435-986-0432 ext. 2411
Monday-Thursday 10:00am – 7:00 pm
Friday and Saturday 10:00am – 6:00 pm
