AskWA: The Statewide Virtual Reference Cooperative

In January 2009, the statewide virtual reference cooperative in Washington State officially became "AskWA", following naming conventions prevalent among other state- and area-wide virtual reference cooperatives.

AskWA is a cooperative of more than 50 libraries throughout Washington State, both public and academic, providing online reference services through chat and email technologies. This statewide network is currently tied in to a global network through providing access to 24/7 online reference services for every participating library.

The AskWA portal is now available. You may also be interested in subscribing to the AskWA email list.
