Have a quick question like "How do I cite an article?" or "What database should I use?" or need to report a technical issue like a database not working, try Chat Reference. This service works a lot like many popular messaging services: chat via text messages with a librarian in real time.

This service is staffed by librarians throughout the Lone Star College System and is available at the following times:

Monday - Thursday: 8:00am - 7:00pm

To use this service, you need a modern web browser, like Firefox, Chrome, or Edge, and an Internet Connection.
