Ohio's online reference service is the place where you can get live help from a librarian
for finding resources for homework or research on any topic,
suggestions for good books to read, or answers to satisfy your general curiosity.

Announcement
KnowItNow24x7 ended on December 31st, 2015. Details about this are available at https://library.ohio.gov/news/knowitnow24-7-service-ends-december-31/

If you would like to chat with a librarian online, please contact your local library to find out what options they offer.

If you are an Ohio librarian and your library is interested in joining a new virtual reference co-op for both public and academic libraries, a small one has been formed and is looking for more members. Contact Amy Korpieski of Clark State Community College for more details.

If you are an Ohio librarian and your library wants to continue offering virtual reference without joining a new co-op, contact support@knowitnow.org for more details on the back end of KnowItNow and to be put in touch with the software and after-hours staffing providers.
