Ask a Librarian

We will respond to you as soon as possible, typically within one business day. If you are on campus, you can visit the library. If you need subject-specific information, email a reference librarian or call our reference desk at 503-725-2399.

This service is intended primarily for the students, faculty, and staff of Portland State University.

Please use your local public library's interlibrary loan department to request materials.
