Answerland Local Widgets
One of Answerland’s goals is to help Oregon libraries provide virtual reference service. One of the ways we do this is to offer our chat software tools free for you to use at your library.
A best practice is to make chat reference service convenient and easy to use. Many libraries use chat “widgets”, which usually feature a simple form or button to begin chat, and which can be embedded in a library website or used in a small pop-up window.
Contact us for more information if you want to use Answerland’s chat software at your library.
