Library Chat: Ask Now

Ask us your question via Library Chat:


Hours of Service

Library Chat is available 24/7. UP Librarians and student reference assistants monitor Library Chat during all the hours the library is open. During the regular term, the hours are:

M - Th 9:00 a.m. - midnight
F 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Sa 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Su 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.

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 desk staff is busy helping patrons in-person, it may take a bit longer to answer your question.

As an alternative, please feel free to email us at library@up.edu, call the Research Desk at 503.943.7788, or visit us in person.
