Library Highlights: Maryland AskUsNow!


Welcome back students, faculty, and staff.   The beginning of a new semester is a great time to get to know the services the library offers.  In this post we highlight:

Maryland AskUsNow! – Our 24/7 chat reference service 

http://www.questionpoint.org/crs/servlet/org.oclc.home.TFSRedirect?virtcategory=13572

Imagine this:
You are working on an assignment but the library is closed.  You need to find additional resources (articles) and you are not sure where to look and need some help.  What can you do to get some help?

You can use Maryland AskUsNow!  It is your access to 24/7 reference assistance.  

You can access it from the link on the library’s homepage.  Once you click on the link, you can ask your question and be chatting with a librarian in no time.  

You can also access it through the AskUsNow qwidget located on the results screen in OneSearch. You do not even have leave the results screen to chat with a librarian.


The librarians will be able to show you how to find the information you need and perhaps even work with you on what search terms will bring the best results.  No question is too tough!
