Ask Here PA, 24/7 research help


Did you ever notice that Musselman Library is open all night long, but the reference desk closes at 10 pm? All that is about to change!

No, we didn't hire a 10 pm - 8 am reference librarian... We joined an international network of reference librarians who help people find answers online. The service is called AskHerePA, and Gettysburg College students can use it whenever they like. If our local reference desk is closed, another college or university reference librarian will help you find what you need. You can chat with the librarian in the IM window, and the librarian can "show" you webpages with resources that will help you.

Gettysburg College librarians will help staff the network, too. Maybe we'll help someone you know who attends another college or university!

Please feel free to try AskHerePA anytime you have a research question, and do let us know what you think. Happy researching!
