Ask a Librarian is a collaborative virtual reference service, offered in English and French, that connects students, faculty members, and researchers from participating university libraries across Ontario with real-time library and research assistance through chat. The service is offered 67 hours per week by Scholars Portal, the digital service arm of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL).

Brock University protects your privacy and your personal information.  The personal information requested via Ask a Librarian is collected under the authority of the Brock University Act, 1964, and in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA).  The information will be used to match you with a chat operator who can best answer your inquiry.
