As the Subject Librarian for the School of Communication, I am here to help and support you in your research. Please contact me with questions related to your research, the use of Milner Library's online and physical collections or to schedule an appointment for a research consultation. I will be happy to help!
You may still request articles through interlibrary loan, but many libraries are not participating in Interlibrary Loan for the time being due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so there is no guarantee that you will be able to get the articles you request.
Librarians are available at Milner's Reference Desk many hours during the week and on weekends. Librarians answer questions and provide assistance in person at the Reference Desk, as well as by phone at 309-438-3451, and via chat or text message.
Fall and Spring Semester Reference Desk service hours are:
Sunday: 12:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Monday - Thursday: 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Friday: 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Saturday: 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Please see the Milner Library website for any variation in hours during breaks, holidays and summer.
