Library Chat

Ask us your question via Library Chat:


Library Chat is available 24/7. UP Librarians and student reference assistants monitor Library Chat during the library's busiest hours.

When UP librarians and student reference assistants aren't available, librarians from Answerland and partner libraries are available to answer questions through Library Chat.

Library Chat questions will be answered on a first-come, first-served basis. If staff are busy helping other patrons, it may take a bit longer to answer your question.

As an alternative, please email us at
