Hi Willow,

The "Ask NCknows" box will show up when Librarians at Ask NCknows are online and you'll see it in the upper right part of the NCpedia screen below the red menu.  If you don't see the chat box, you'll see an envelope to email us at NCpedia to ask your question.  It looks like this:


You can also go directly to NCknows at their website

I hope this helps!

Hi Ryann,

Thanks for visiting NCpedia and taking the time to leave your comment.  Please let us know what facts you would like to see!  We are always trying to improve NCpedia content.  

Also, make sure you click on the blue text for each of the symbols to see the facts for each of the state symbols.  The page you commented on is primarily a list of symbols with links to the article for each.

And you'll be happy to know that you can chat with a librarian!  If you look in the upper right section of this screen you'll see a box with "Ask NCknows."  When the box indicates that librarians are online you can type in the box to start a live chat.  You can also follow this link to the NCknows website, it's open 24/7!
