 Chat With a Librarian


Chat with a Librarian is a live interactive chat service that allows you to converse with a librarian in real time.  

Here's How it Works

A librarian is available 24/7 to answer questions and direct you to various websites if needed.  A normal session lasts 5-20 minutes.   It can take several minutes for the librarian to search and send you an answer.

The librarian may ask you questions to get a better understanding of what you need.  He or she may offer to follow up by email if your question requires further in-depth research or assistance.   The librarian will then have the opportunity to refer you to print and local resources, as well as subject specialists who may not be available during the live session.
