Ask a Librarian 24/7 Chat


Javascript required to chat

You do allow embedded content.

To chat with a Librarian, type your question directly into this chat window. Your question may be answered by a reference librarian from Berkeley, from another UC campus, or another academic library elsewhere in the US.  We share information about our libraries to make sure you get good answers.

If the librarian can't answer you well enough, your question will be referred to a Berkeley librarian for follow-up.

Have fun chatting!
