How do I get to the virtual Ask Desk?
Drop in to the Ask Desk via the Chat with a Librarian box or email. Simply say “Hello” and we’ll be glad to help.

How do I share a paper?
We will be able to work with Google Docs and their shared features. Unfortunately, we will be unable to review papers in other formats. The librarian on duty will give their email address for you to share your Google Doc with.
