Questions? Use Our Chat Service

Ebling’s chat service is a popular way to get a quick question answered or start a longer conversation that may continue with email or become a face to face meeting. Whether it’s a quick factual question or a detailed research inquiry, we can offer assistance.

In 2014 over 450 people asked us questions over chat.

Access our chat service on any of the Ebling Library website pages through
Ask a Librarian

Ebling librarians staff our chat service Monday – Friday from 9 am – 4:30 pm and on weekends from 10:30 am – 5:30 pm. After hours your chat will roll over to the UW-Madison College Library staff. They will attend to your question or will leave a message for us to get back to you the next day. Give our chat service a try. We’d love to hear from you!
