Zoom Online Meetings

If you ask a question by chat, email, phone, or text and the librarian thinks it would be more efficient to hold a face to face conversation, they may suggest a Zoom meeting with you, to enable screen sharing. This is particularly effective when the answer to your question entails describing a complex process.
