Ask the Online Librarian

The Foundation Center's Ask the Online Librarian feature enables visitors to the site to ask questions about foundations, philanthropy, and fundraising research via e-mail (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) or live chat (9:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST, Monday through Wednesday; 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Thursday and Friday). Online librarians will respond to requests for suggestions about books, periodicals, and Internet resources on particular philanthropic or nonprofit topics; give advice on the best use of Foundation Center resources; provide brief answers to factual questions; and refer individuals to outside resources when appropriate.
