Virtual Reference Best Practices

Chat & Admin Logon

  • Upper right-hand corner - Logon
  • Left hand column: Launch Chat
  • July 23 - August 31: choose two Michigan RHN queues. Until September, RHN librarians will *not* staff the Academic 24/7 queue through the end of August. This is because chat traffic is slow and the Academic 24/7 coop is already overstaffed, so Wren at OCLC has asked us to only pick up the RHN queues for this time. Our patrons will still have 24/7 chat from July 23 on.
  • September 1 forward: choose all three queues.
