AskThom Virtual Reference Service

Get real-time reference help with our new virtual reference service, AskThom. It’s ideal for those away-from-school questions or for the quick questions you don’t ask because you’re on the second floor of the library and we’re down on the first floor. AskThom should be helpful to everyone – from those of you currently in legal writing classes to those who are taking upper level paper classes.

AskThom is available Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 6 pm. At other times, feel free to e-mail Jane at jlarrington@tjsl.edu or Patrick at pmeyer@tjsl.edu.

Library Tries AskThom Virtual Reference

Have you ever wished you could ask a reference question in real time and from where you are studying? Maybe you just can’t find where to find the conversion table in the Federal Practice Digest or you can’t figure out what a treatise is. Or perhaps that draft of your course paper is coming due and you can’t find the relevant subject materials. Our new virtual reference/chat service, AskThom, should be helpful to everyone – from those of you currently in legal writing class to those who are taking upper level paper classes.

Until the link to AskThom is placed on the library homepage, you can access it by clicking on the following link. You may type your question at the very bottom of the screen, in the box below the heading “Type here to chat. Press ENTER to send.”

The URL to AskThom is: http://refchatter.net/chat/tjslref@chat.refchatter.net. AskThom will be available on Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 6 pm. At other times, feel free to e-mail Jane or Patrick.
