AskMN - The Librarian Is InAskMN is a service that helps you connect with a librarian via chat anytime, day or night, for assistance with library research and resources!

Who am I chatting with?

When McNally Smith librarians are unavailable, you will be connected with librarians from other college libraries in Minnesota or across the county.  If necessary, the McNally Smith librarian may follow up on those chat sessions with you.

Note: Librarians outside of McNally Smith do not have access to your account information.  If you have any questions regarding the items you have checked out, please stop by the Circulation Desk or call 651-361-3480.
