Providing Reference Services 24/7
KnowItNow is a live online information service provided free of charge for the citizens of Ohio by the State Library of Ohio and your local public library. Professional librarians are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week
to answer your reference questions and assist you in finding information.
Once logged on with your Ohio zip code, you and a librarian engage in a "chat" session. The librarian “pushes” high quality, authoritative online resources to your screen. You can watch and participate as librarians skillfully navigate the Internet to find precise answers to your questions.
At the conclusion of each KnowItNow session, you will receive a complete transcript of your session via email including links to all the online resources shared during that session. (Information obtained from the KnowItNow website (www.knowitnow.org )
