Community members can download the Cleared4 Health Survey to obtain a Cleared4 pass.

Chat With a Librarian  is a live, online reference assistance chat service. Questions are answered by staff at the Palomar College Library or by other reference librarians participating in our worldwide network. This free service is easy to use and available 24 hours/day, 7 days/week! A microphone is not mandatory to use the chat service; as it is text-based. The service does allow for screensharing if a student prefers that type of assistance and has a microphone.
