Reference Services

All SUA students, faculty, and staff can take advantage of the library’s reference services, which include personalized research sessions. Reference questions can also be emailed directly to library@soka.edu. Questions asked by phone or email are answered in a timely manner.

Walk-in reference questions are welcomed and encouraged at the Ikeda Library. To walk-in with a reference question, approach the Reference Desk on the second floor of the library and ask the Reference Librarian on duty for assistance.
