Chat & Text
Our chat reference service, AskAcademic, is staffed by academic librarians in Texas and Colorado — and sometimes by ASU librarians. Ask your questions anytime - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (except holidays). You may chat with us here or text us at 325-270-3493. Enter ASU as the first three characters of the text, then type your question.
Prefer to work solo? We created several guides and videos so researchers can learn the basics of academic research on their own. We also have LibGuides, which are lists of recommended videos, websites, databases, books, and more that students will find useful in their research. Check out the LibGuide for your subject!
