LIVE CHAT VIA
KnowItNow24x7

Get answers to your reference questions live through KnowItNow24x7.* Once logged on, you and a librarian engage in a live "chat" session. At the conclusion of each KnowItNow session, you will receive a complete transcript of the session via email. This transcript will include links to all Internet resources shared during that session. Document delivery fees apply to all documents you receive.

NOTICE:

KnowItNow24x7 is designed to provide quick answers. Legal reference questions, however, often involve several layers of information and issues which may not be possible to resolve completely in a limited amount of time. You will need to decide whether what we are able to provide under these time and framwork constraints is sufficient to answer your question.


* The Law library will be online Mon. - Fri. 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. After 4:30 p.m., Know-it-Now is staffed by other providers.
