TIP #5 – You can get research help 24/7 through LRC Live Reference Service:
LRC Live is a great service for online research and search strategy assistance. This service enables you and a library reference staff member to chat online and share online content in real-time, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week! So, if you wake up in the middle of the night and need to chat with a librarian (it could happen), someone will be available to assist you.
