Ask a Librarian

You don't have to be on campus to get help with your research. No matter where you are, a librarian is here to help you get started on your research, find new places to look for information, search for information in the article indexes, and find a particular article or book.

AskAway

AskAway is designed to help college and university students in British Columbia with their research for term papers, assignments and other academic projects. Library staff are available to chat in real-time and can help you:

  • find library and online resources on your topic,
  • answer questions about your library, and
  • suggest research strategies.

AskAway serves students, faculty and staff at all publicly-funded, post-secondary institutions in British Columbia. The service is open to all questions, but primarily helps students with course-related research tasks such as finding books, journal articles, and other resources. AskAway emphasizes teaching users to be self-sufficient researchers.

To get started, type your question into the AskAway box on the right and click "Send". A library staff person will be with you shortly.
