Library News Release

Release Date: 03/01/2004

'Ask A Question' service expansion launches March 1

Need help finding information and can't come to a library?

The Seattle Public Library's popular "Ask A Question" service now offers expanded online information services in cooperation with several area libraries.

In addition to email and improved Live Help Chat services, staff at The Seattle Public Library are working with the Sound Libraries Information Consortium, tapping into more resources to help library users with information searches.

Guidance to legal resources is provided by the Washington State Law Library and the King County Law Library. Help with in-depth medical searches is provided by the University of Washington Health Sciences Libraries. The Center for Urban Horticulture's Elisabeth C. Miller Library will provide quick answers to gardening questions.

The services are free and available to all.

In addition to the "Ask a Question" button on The Seattle Public Library home page at www.spl.org , look for the "Ask a Question" link at the top of every page on the Web site. These will guide you to links for email and Live Help services.

Patrons of The Seattle Public Library may also get help finding information by phone (206-386-4636) or by asking staff at their nearest branch library.
