Library Chat Availability Expanding to 7 Days a Week

by Matt Stevons on 2020-04-20T08:00:00-05:00 in Library News & Updates | Comments
The PG Library is happy to announce expanded librarian chat service hours and availability!  The new chat hours will start Wednesday, April 22, 2020: 
 
Sunday - Tuesday: 10:00 am ET - 10:00 pm ET
Wednesday - Saturday: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm ET
 
To offer expanded service hours, the PG Library is joining a cooperative of libraries to provide expanded chat assistance to students.  PG's librarian team will still monitor and answer chat Monday to Friday, but librarians within the cooperative provide chat on Saturdays and Sundays (and help us out on other days as needed).  This means you'll be able to get research assistance 7 days a week!  Additionally, you may notice the chat interface has changed a little, as we also had to change our chat platform to participate in the chat cooperative.  One of the benefits is we can now link to chat in far more places than we could before.
 
As always, all PG students and faculty are also welcome to email us at library@purdueglobal.edu or schedule a 1-on-1 web meeting appointment.
