The Library Channel: news, events, announcements

Text a librarian

ASU students now have a new way to connect with the library – by texting 480-525-9826.  

The new text messaging service is offered as part of the ASU Library Ask-a-Librarian chat service.  

Simple, directional questions work best:  

How late is the library open?  

Does the library have this film?  

When are my books due? 

Answers are sent through text.

The Ask-a-Librarian service gives the ASU community remote access to support through a variety of channels, including email, online chat and now text messaging. Students can also connect with library collections through Ask an Archivist.
