When is a librarian online?
Instant messaging hours are the same as the library hours. If the librarian is "away," then she has stepped away from the desk for a few moments and will return shortly.
Where can I find the chat box?
IM access points include:
- Contact Us
- Ask a Librarian
- Research Guides
- Journal Holdings List
- EBSCOHost Search Results
Where is the chat box? I do not see it on my screen.
The chat service is flash based. If you are using a computer or device that does not have flash, you will not be able to use the IM service.
What kind of questions can I ask?
You can ask us anything library related, such as what are library hours, how to renew your items, send a request for articles, database and eResources help, and much more.
I accidentally closed the window that had the chat box and now my message is gone. How do I get it back?
Once you close the window, your original message is gone. Simply restart the conversation in the new window and we will respond again.
I sent a message and no one has responded, what should I do?
If we have not responded within a couple of minutes, something may be wrong with the chat service. Please email us at email@example.com.
