Muntz Library Joins UT System Ask A Librarian Service

If you have looked at the library’s website recently, you will find a new link under the Ask-a-Librarian box. We are featuring a link to the UT System Ask-A-Librarian Service. By clicking on that link, or going directly to the service’s link (, you can get reference assistance online from a library staff throughout the UT System. For UT Tyler, this is another way for the library to provide research and reference assistance to students and the academic community by tapping into the knowledge and efforts of other UT System librarians. Ask a UT System Librarian is a chat-based service that enables users to ask reference questions that will be answered by librarians located throughout the University of Texas System. The service runs during the following hours:

Monday - Thursday: 12pm - midnight Friday: 12pm - 4pm Sunday: 6 - midnight The service is designed to answer reference questions. Do note that because the service is staffed by members of various UT System campuses that the librarian assistingyou may not be familiar with the specifics of your local University of Texas library. As a result, librarians may suggest and provide information for contacting your local library for library-specific, policy-oriented, or involved questions. We are currently participating in the service on a trial basis. Please feel free to try it out and give the library some feedback. You can provide suggestions and responses via e-mail (library AT uttyler DOT edu; just remove the words and put in the correct symbols) or leave a comment here on the blog.
