Chat 24/7

The Henry Madden Library is one of many libraries across the U.S. that staffs the QuestionPoint 24/7 Chat Reference Service. This service is ideal for research questions and general information.

Because this is a national service staffed by librarians across the country, many questions directly related to Fresno State or to your library account (such as fines, status of interlibrary loan requests, book renewals, etc.) may not be able to be answered right away—for these types of questions, please call or email us.

If you want to chat now, and the chat feature is not working on this page, please visit the service page.
