What is askON?

This is a live, chat-based information and research service offered by public and college libraries in Ontario.

How does it work?

This service delivers immediate, interactive, and knowledgeable research help to Ontario students. Get help with research for term papers, assignments and other academic projects. Library staff are available to chat in real-time and help you:

  • formulate research topics
  • find library and online resources on your topic
  • select and access appropriate resources
  • evaluate information resources

The askON chat reference service is staffed by participating post-secondary libraries around Ontario. You may be chatting with askON staff from a different institution/library. We accept questions from students and faculty at other Ontario colleges but may, depending on the question and staff availability, refer you to your local library.

We need your feedback

At the end of each chat session you will be requested to fill in a short survey. Please provide us with your feedback so that we can enhance, expand and improve this service!

If you have any questions, or comments about this service, please contact us
