AskNow is a live
online interactive reference service, available to you 24 hours a day,
7 days a week.
AskNow combines the speed and convenience of the Internet with the
of experienced reference librarians.
When you connect to AskNow, the librarian online may not be from your
library and will not have access to your personal library account
information. The librarian may be from any one of over 100 California
public libraries or elsewhere in the national 24/7 Reference
AskNow is a member of the nationwide cooperative called 24/7 Reference. California librarians provide coverage when our libraries are open to
the public. During busy periods and off-hours the service is supported
by other librarians working throughout the country from their own
libraries. This national support allows us to have librarians available
whenever you need information.
