IM a Librarian – UW Law Library Introduces Instant Messaging Service

Do you IM? If so, add us to your buddy list. The UW Law Library is pleased to announce our new instant messaging service. Our reference librarians can offer you quick research assistance in real time.

We support IM via AIM, Yahoo, MSN, and ICQ.
Here is our list of buddy names:

  • AIM: AskUWLaw
  • Yahoo: AskUWLaw
  • MSN:
  • ICQ: 204333744

A couple of things to remember:

  • IM is best for questions that can be answered quickly. For more complex questions, contact us in person, by phone, or by email. See our Ask a Librarian page for more information.
  • Don’t have IM software installed on your computer? Chat directly in your Web browser using Meebo.
  • Reference assistance is intended primarily for current students, faculty and staff of UW-Madison. Anyone may contact us, but we can only provide limited assistance to those outside of the campus community.
  • And, of course, our disclaimer: As with all of our reference services, we cannot interpret the law as it applies to specific facts or explain the substantive content of statutes and case law. Our assistance does not constitute legal advice.

If anyone would like to contact me personally, my buddy name is BonnieatUWLaw (AIM & Yahoo).
