Telephone Reference Services 

Since 1967, the Telephone Reference Service has been operating at the Pratt Library. You can call 410-396-5430 for answers to ready-reference questions. Librarians can give you brief factual answers on many subjects. Usually questions are answered within five minutes. If questions require more resources, or are more complex, the librarians at Telephone Reference will direct your call to the reference staff in the library subject departments.
