Ask a Librarian IM service now in Chalk

Library Chat module displayed in ChalkThe new version of Chalk, launched on September 11, features a new service for faculty and students:  Ask a Librarian instant messaging.

The Ask a Librarian module is an optional tool that connects you to the Library’s instant message (IM) reference service directly from Chalk.  Chat live with a University of Chicago librarian via IM whenever the reference desk is open—right from your “My Chalk” page.   

Instructors and TAs can also add the Ask a Librarian module to their course sites, providing students with seamless access to this important service from their course menu.  

Instructions for adding the Ask a Librarian to Chalk are available online.  Librarians are also available to help you individually
