Online Interactive Information Services
  askusnow! is Maryland's 24/7 live online interactive service for residents and students. Trained librarians provide answers to questions, research guidance, and help navigating the Internet. The librarian should be able to take you to various websites and will communicate with you using Internet chat. A normal session lasts no longer than 15-20 minutes. The librarian may offer to follow-up by e-mail if your question cannot be answered online in this timeframe.
