Virtual, Real-time Reference

Would you like to be able to ask your reference questions in real time, through instant messaging?

If you have IM software, see the table below for the appropriate screen name.

If you don't have IM software install one of the services listed below by clicking on the Icon of the software of your choice. Our screennames for each of the IM clients are listed next to the link to their software.

You can also contact us by sending a text message to our email address:  askus@hackleylibrary.org

Unfortunately, we are no longer able to provide chat reference unless you have IM software of your own.



 This will be part of our regular reference service, along with our in-person and telephone reference services. In other words, the same person will be answering all types of questions at the same time, so please be patient.


The IM service will be available during regular, open hours of the Library:

Monday-Tuesday: 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Wednesday-Saturday: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
