Improved Instant Messaging

IMInstant Messaging (IM) can now be used for general library questions as well as research assistance. The service now uses a pop-up browser so you can continue your Library website session without losing your IM session helper. Find the IM button on pages where you are likely to have questions like the Find Articles and Databases page. The service is available only during library hours. All you need is a computer connected to the internet. Try it.
