The Ask a Librarian modules appear at the top of the list.  There are three options:

  1. Ask a Law Librarian: Contacts librarians at the D'Angelo Law Library
  2. Ask a Librarian: Our general reference service - all subjects.
  3. Ask a Science Librarian: Contacts librarians at the John Crerar Library.

Please Note: You can only have one module on your My Chalk page.  Additional Ask a Librarian modules may cause connection problems.
