Need information?  Ask us! 

Librarians and library associates are happy to teach you how to find the information you need. We will get you started in your search for scholarly sources for a project, direct you to the best reference tools or Web sites, even settle a disagreement between you and your roommate about who won the World Cup in 1982.

Reference service is available in person at the Reinsch Library or at the Ballston Center Library Extension, by phone at 703-284-1649, or by e-mail at, or just click Ask a Librarian!
Of course, in-depth reference questions are best handled by coming into the library.  We respond to e-mailed questions the same day whenever the main library reference desk is staffed: 
Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.
Friday, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. 
Saturday, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. 
Sunday, 12 p.m. - 8 p.m. 
Marymount students, faculty, and staff may also make an appointment with a librarian for assistance with lengthy or complex reference questions. 
Reference staff are available at the Ballston Center Library Extension during selected open hours.
* Reference desk hours may change due to holidays, etc. and over the summer. Please check our hours page for details.
