Reference Librarians are available to answer reference questions in the library during regular Reference Desk hours. Reference Librarians can be reached in person at the the Reference Desk, and by Phone, or email. Appointments can be made for individual or small-group consultations (508-565-1203).

Customized Library Instruction is also available for classes.

The MacPháidín Library's Instruction Classroom can be reserved for occasional computer training sessions and class presentations.
