Another (Classes Start Tomorrow!) Viewpoint

View of Davis Library's grounds around 2 PM Sunday 6.1.14

Classes start Monday, June 2, 2014 for the Summer I and10-Week Sessions here at the University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College (URG/RGCC.)
As the new term begins, we want to announce some new changes to the state-wide online reference services that Davis Library has been making available to its users for after hours research help.

Know-It-Now Academic, a service that was geared primarily for college students and OhioLINK users, is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

Now, links from the Davis Library’s Website and LibGuides will take users to Know-It-Now/24x7, a similar service that is available to ALL Ohio residents.  The chat forums here are staffed primarily by librarians from Ohio’s public libraries rather than academic libraries.  However, you should be able to ask the same type of questions as before.

Login for the new service only requires you to show your proof of residency (Ohio Zip Cope.)   

Remember the librarians staffing these chat forums are NOT located at URG/RGCC, so they may not be able to answer specific questions about the Davis Library or your class assignments.  

In such cases, you’ll want to “Ask Us! Contacting us is easy and our responses are generally made within 24 hours. 

Reach us by phone at 1.800.282.7201, ext. 7005 or via email at

Need more help?  Once again, just “Ask Us!
