ScholarsPortal Ask Service: A Guelph Perspective
The University of Guelph has provided 'chat' reference services since 2002. In this time, the service has evolved and changed with different technologies, and we are currently delivering this service through a ScholarsPortal initiative: Ask: Chat with a librarian. This service is a collaborative venture including 10 other Ontario Universities. Find out how we participate in this service; how the various universities share their knowledge and expertise with all agents; get a glimpse of the public interface; and see how this service is growing.
