Live Chat with a Reference Librarian

CALS’s biggest resource is our librarians. Our Live Chat service has been suspended temporarily as we search for a new service provider. However, you may still call a Reference Librarian at 918-3000 or visit the Reference Department at the Main Library, located at 100 Rock St., in downtown Little Rock.

Additional state funds were provided by the Arkansas Department of Education.
