Live Chat Research Assistance
The URI Libraries provide research assistance using our live chat widget and Ask a Librarian app for iOS and Android. Once you ask a question, the librarian can guide you in your research or help you find quickly-located factual information.
This service operates the same hours as the Info & Research Help Desk.
Click on the black arrow to open the chat in a new window.
If we’re not online, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 1-2 business days for a response.
If you are unable to reach a librarian during the hours of service, or if you need assistance at another time, please stop by or call one of the URI Reference Desks.
Please note that your online reference interaction may be logged for quality assurance.
