The article reports on the selection of the University of South Carolina School of Library Information Science by the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) to support its Ask-A-Librarian Online Chat Reference Service for 2007-2008. More than one hundred hours of online chat reference service per week are offered to the students, faculty, and staff at eight ASERL institutions. Feili Tiu, assistant professor and primary investigator of the project, states that the program is a great opportunity for students to gain experience with the provision of real-world virtual reference services (VRS).
