askON turns 10!

On Wednesday March 14, Library & Media Services staff along with Vice the President of Student Services, Michele Beaudoin, celebrated the 10th anniversary of askON virtual reference services.

Launched in February 2008, this former branch of Knowledge Ontario became part of the Ontario College Library Service (OCLS) in April 2012. Fanshawe was one of the first college libraries to join askON and has seen the service grow tremendously in terms of participating colleges and the number of reference questions bring asked.

2016-2017 was a record breaking year for askON with Fanshawe being the third busiest college. We are poised for an even better year in 2017-2018.

Thank you Fanshawe students, staff and faculty – keep the questions coming!
