Need answers fast? Try our chat service

Got a research question? Log on and chat up a Librarian.


  Do you ever feel the need to talk with a Reference Librarian when you’re off campus? Or maybe you’ve scored your favorite study spot on the third floor of the Library and you really don’t want to pack up all your gear and trot down to the Reference Desk.
Now there’s no reason to stress anymore thanks to our online live chat service called LibChat.  It is available on our Ask A Librarian page.
Real time conversation leads the student to additional resources available through Kinlaw Library databases.


Kinlaw Library uses this service so that students and faculty can “talk” with one of the many experienced Reference Librarians whenever the Reference desk is open. Users simply access the chat window on the Library’s website and type their question into the chat box to start the session. A Librarian will respond with the needed answer or advice.

What kind of help is available through chat? The short answer is, just about anything. Reference Librarians can help select a database to find articles for class papers, check availability of materials or suggest strategies for focusing a broad research topic. The Librarians can even offer basic information about hours and Library policies.

Our chat service is available from 1 pm to 9 pm, Monday through Thursday; 1pm to 5 pm, Friday; and 2pm to 10 pm on Saturday.  If you check our Answers page, you can leave a question and we will get back to you.

Celebrate Open Access Week


Did you know that information can be expensive?  

That may not occur to you during a Google search, or even when you use a library database to find a scholarly article, but if you try to get to one of those articles after you’ve left Asbury, you will discover that you have to pay $30 or more just to download one article from a journal publisher.  Some scholars are not happy about that situation, and have turned to Open Access publishing as another way to share their research.  If a journal or book is published online as Open Access, it means that any reader in the world can get to it online and read it without having to pay a penny.  The hope is that by taking down the cost barriers, more and more people will be inspired to use the ideas in Open Access books and articles to spark their own ingenuity!  If you’d like to see a great example of that in action, check out this video about a teenager who developed a critical cancer detection tool through researching Open Access journal articles –

So, now that you know, be sure to celebrate Open Access Week this week (October 20-26)!  For more information, you might want to start here -- Our handy information page on Open Access

Google does not have it all! Gasp!


But the Library does!

You’ve got a cell phone. You’ve got a computer. You’ve got the internet. You think you’re connected?
 Unless you’re connected to the Kinlaw Library, you may not know what you’re missing. One of the biggest myths around is that everything is on the Internet and that you can find it for free. The fact is you’ll find little information on the Web before 1980 and little serious research available for free. Some information is actually easier to find in print than online. The Kinlaw Library offers vast collections of books and other reference materials, historical and rare documents, photographs and other primary source material. The library also has an extensive collection of online journals to meet the specialized needs of student and faculty researchers. Some of these materials may be available on the Internet, but at a steep price.  Instead those materials can be found on the library’s website - for FREE.  If we don't have something you need, we can get it for you - for FREE.  Our library offers the best of both worlds: extensive print works and some of the finest electronic resources available. We provide online collections free of charge to our students in the same way we provide books, videos and other resources - you just have to log in!  Using the library has never been faster, easier or more comfortable.

Most importantly, there are librarians to help students find what they need, whether it’s in a book, journal, government document or database. The library may be the only place on campus where you’re not expected to know the answer. Librarians are the ultimate search engines. Our job is to help you find the answers. To help students sharpen their research skills, the library offers regular library instruction sessions. Students may also request an individual research consultation to receive independent library instruction or in depth research assistance. The Kinlaw Library encourages all students to find out more by stopping by the library or checking out our website.
In addition to Web access, the library has more than 250 seats for studying and researching,  40 computer work stations, wireless technology throughout the building, power and data access at all study stations as well as art exhibits and a coffee lounge. 

Librarians are tour-guides for all of knowledge.     –Patrick Ness

Yes we have Full Text

Did you know that we have full text from over 50,000 journal titles?

Yes we do.   And they are all available through our databases.   When you are searching for articles, you should see one of several options:  

1) If you see a PDF icon, there is the article directly.  Click on that icon and there you go.  You can email it, print it, or download the pdf.   We have so many of these, you may never come across the other options.   But keep reading just in case.

2) You might see a link that says "Click to see if this is Full Text in another database".  In that case, click the link and you will jump to another database.  

3)  You might see a link that says "Click to get to full text of article" which might lead you out to a publishers web site where we might have direct access.  

If you don't see any of that, then you will probably need to fill out an InterLibrary Loan form.  The forms are located on our web page.    We can obtain any article that you need for free!

And if none of that is working for you, please ask for help.
