About Reference Chat

Reference Chat is intended primarily for the students, faculty, and staff of Gardner-Webb University to assist with questions related to research or library resources. Reference Chat is staffed by Gardner-Webb librarians during regular business hours and weekday evenings. Chat questions are answered as quickly as possible (usually within minutes unless they are away from the desk helping other patrons). A North Carolina-based after-hours chat reference service monitors Chat on the weekends when Gardner-Webb librarians are unavailable.

If Reference Chat is away or offline, you may email us at or visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.  If you are looking for a particular library staff member or subject liaison, view our Staff Directory or Library Liaisons page.
