  • Request assistance from the reference department of a major library in the region.
  • Contact the NEKLS office for assistance by phone, email, online chat, or using our online chat service.
  • Post the reference question on the KANLIB-L or NEKLS-L email discussion lists. All NEKLS librarians should be subscribed to these lists.
