Students have several options when contacting Yuba College Library for assistance:

  • E-mail the library via the Ask A Librarian Form.  Offered during the Fall and Spring semesters only, students can use this form to e-mail the Yuba College Library reference desk for their research needs. To expedite your request, please include your topic (be specific) and the sources you have already used.  A librarian will answer your e-mail shortly.

A librarian will contact you within 24 hours to set up an appointment. This service is not available when the library is closed.
  • Visit the library in person.  If you have immediate research needs, visiting the library in person is often the quickest way to receive assistance.  Yuba College Library is open Monday through Thursday, from 7:45am to 8pm, and Friday, from 7:45am to 4:30pm.
