Library Departments

The MAIN Library phone is 304-766-3116.
The reference desk is 304-766-3135

Other office phones are listed below, HOWEVER most librarians and staff spend more time on "out of office duties" (reference desk, bibliographic instruction, etc.) than "in the office." So...you are more likely to "catch" a specific person by phoning the MAIN (circulation) desk and having them transfer the call in the direction "your target" was heading. Names appear under more than one heading due to split and shared duties.
Our staff members are here to assist you with your information needs. Please contact ANY of us if we can help you in your scholarly endeavors or information needs.
