Ask a Librarian form

Do you have a reference question, but can't make it to the library to talk to a librarian? Submit your question using the Ask a Librarian form linked above and one of our librarians will get back to you during business hours, Monday through Friday.

You can also give us a call at 415-618-3842.

If you would like individual research help, you can use this form  to schedule an appointment with a librarian for a research consultation over Zoom or over the phone. 

(In-person appointments will be available when the library reopens after the resumption of in-person instruction and operations.)

This service is available to currently enrolled Academy of Art University students and faculty only.
