Ask a Librarian is a free online reference service that allows you to ask questions and receive answers immediately – either in live chat mode or by e-mail within 24 hours Mondays to Fridays (except holidays). Assistance is provided by specially trained librarians/information professionals at participating libraries and IZUM.
The reference service provides two basic types of assistance:
Ask by E-mail
You can browse through all the questions that were either submitted by you or are publicly accessible in the global QuestionPoint knowledge base. All you have to do is enter your e-mail address and the password provided when you ask a question for the first time.
Questions and answers are usually added to the knowledge base. In this case, your name and e-mail address will be deleted automatically. Your e-mail address will not be added to any mailing list and we will do anything to prevent misuse.
The reference service is supported by the QuestionPoint − Cooperative Virtual Reference (Ask a Librarian) tool which is being developed by the Library of Congress and Online Computer Library Center, Inc. (OCLC). QuestionPoint terms of service can be found on their website.
The user interface is translated into Slovene to the extent permitted by the interface's architecture.
