24/7 Reference Assistance: Ask A Librarian


Have you ever needed to look something up at 2 am and discovered that Google alone just wouldn't cut it? Ever wonder if you're getting all the articles you need -- or the best articles -- on a given topic?

The University of California Libraries now offer 24-hour chat reference assistance. Library staff from throughout the UC system, or around the world depending on the time of day, are ready to assist you.

At this time UCSF librarians do not staff this service, but we'll be alerted whenever a question from a UCSF patron requires further assistance. We hope this is an effective new tool to help with your research needs, in addition to the many other ways we can help. If you try out Ask a Librarian, please let us know what you think.
