Use this chat-based service to ask for reference help from library staff from a Novanet Library. 

This doesn't put you in touch directly with King's Library, but is a great way to get quick answers and links.

This service is designed to respond to brief questions that can be answered quickly and effectively using online resources, such as:

  • "Where/how can I access this resource?"
  • "Where should I start researching this topic?"
  • "Does my library have this title?"
  • "Can you see why I can't access this link?"
  • "What kind of help can I get through my library?"
  • and much more

The Live Help staff will provide you with the best answer, or connect you to the person who can.

For specific questions about items you have on loan or have already requested, please contact us directly at library@ukings.ca
