About NCknows

What is NCknows?

NCknows is a service that allows North Carolina residents to get help from librarians and use their library resources from their computer. By typing messages back and forth, you can communicate with a librarian, browse webpages together, receive articles from NC LIVE, and get answers to questions. It's free, helpful and easy.

Who is NCknows?

NCknows is staffed by librarians from academic, public and specialty libraries. By coordinating with participating libraries across the state and other libraries across the country, we are able to offer help around the clock.

How is NCknows supported?

NCknows is a pilot project supported by a grant under the Federally-funded Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). The project is administered by the State Library of North Carolina in Raleigh with help from a committee of librarians and directors from North Carolina's libraries.
