Ask a Librarian is a collaborative virtual reference service, offered in English and French, that connects students, faculty members, and researchers from participating university libraries across Ontario with real-time library and research assistance through chat. The service is offered by Scholars Portal, the digital service arm of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL).
Ask a Librarian is available 67 hours per week during the academic year, including on evenings and weekends.
Ask a Librarian provides online, on-demand assistance from your library website, allowing users to get immediate help no matter where they are.
Our expert staff are trained to provide local, trustworthy answers to library- and research-related questions.
Chat support is available in both English and French during all service hours.
Ask a Librarian is powered by Nub Games’ LibraryH3lp, a flexible, scalable chat platform designed for libraries. LibraryH3lp has a simple, user-friendly interface, ample customization options, and a responsive customer support team. The platform has proactive chat functionality and offers unlimited knowledge bases and an optional add-on for text messaging.
Scholars Portal offers a comprehensive training program for new chat operators. Sessions include an orientation to the service, hands-on training on the chat platform, a review of best practices for virtual reference and online communication, and an introduction to service policies and procedures.
