Reference Assistance

Reference Desk

Miramar's Reference Librarians are here to help you. They can assist you in finding specific answers to your questions, guide you in effective research and database search strategies, or help you find materials to check out. If you need more comprehensive information than the Miramar Library/LRC can offer, our reference librarians can also help direct you to other libraries in the San Diego region.

In-Person Questions

We invite you to come to the library and meet with a reference librarian in person for assistance with your research projects or information needs. The Reference Desk is located to your left as you enter the library. If you have a question about an instructor's assignment, please bring us your syllabus or a handout detailing the assignment.

Telephone

Assistance by telephone is available during the library's business hours.
Call (619) 388-7310 to be transferred to a reference librarian.
