askON Virtual Reference Service

Connect With Us

askON logochat live online with askON’s expert staff. We will help you find the right information.

askON is a real-time chat research and information service developed by Ontario libraries and Ask Ontario. Participating college libraries contribute staff to askON’s collaborative schedule.

askON TEXT service will launch September 2015. Visitors will be able to text a question their library's unique number found on the library contact page.

askON responds to questions on a wide range of subjects. We accept requests from visitors outside participating libraries but we may, depending on the availability of resources, refer you to your local library.
