The Lewis J. Ort Library is thrilled to announce that we have joined with Maryland AskUsNow! to offer students, faculty and staff a 24/7 chat reference service. This chat service allows the library to offer access to reference help whenever and wherever you may need it.
If you are working on a paper late into the night and you need some extra assistance finding information, you can now use Maryland AskUsNow! to chat with a librarian for that help. Librarians from the Ort Library chat only during certain hours, so you may be helped by a non-FSU librarian. Even though you may be chatting with someone from outside FSU, they still have access to information about the library and can help you use the library catalog or the library databases. Providing a valid e-mail address will also allow a librarian from the Ort Library to follow up on your question.
Try the service out by clicking on the Maryland AskUsNow! link on the library’s home page or by clicking on the icon above.
