LibAnswers is Here!

Welcome to a New Year and new semester at Saint Leo University! To better assist our patrons’ reference needs, we have implemented a new system: LibAnswers!
Library users can type questions into a LibAnswers box to search a knowledge base of FAQs. These FAQs are uploaded from questions received and answered by SLU librarians, as well as from questions and answers that librarians generate and upload. 
If a satisfactory answer to a question does not appear in the FAQs, library users have the option to submit the question as an email through the LibAnswers question box form. 
Librarians are still available for assistance at the reference desk, by telephone, or through email, but head over to our library page and give LibAnswers a try! The link to LibAnswers can be found on the main library page in a tab next to “Access LibGuides” or at

Wishing you success with the upcoming classes!
