Information for Schools

In order to better support the educators and their students who use Maryland AskUsNow!, we have created the "How To Have a Class Visit" toolkit. Intended to help schools better connect with our service and our resources, it offers information about how AskUsNow! works, provides recommendations on how to set up a visit to work on a school assignment, and shows example transcripts to illustrate the interactions students and their teachers can expect from our librarians when using AskUsNow!.

We also encourage Maryland schools to promote Maryland AskUsNow! on their school websites using the question widget (aka qwidget). 

Access our qwidget implementation guide.

These documents will evolve as the needs of our students evolve so please don't hesitate to contact us with questions, comments, or ideas for future versions.
