We will receive your message through our chat system, and our replies will be sent to your cell phone. Although the Benedictine University Library does not charge for Ask a Librarian services, sending and receiving text messages may result in charges from your mobile provider, depending on your service plan. We answer text messages during our regular chat service hours. Messages sent while we are offline will be received the next time we are available.
