Research assistance from a Librarian will be offered during our hours of operation remotely via Zoom. Please check the library homepage for current hours of operation.  If we are helping another student, don't hesitate to reach out to us through chat or submit your question via the Ask a Question form and we will get back to you as soon as possible!  We can also be reached by email: nvc-library@alamo.edu.
