With LibraryH3lp, you can embed chat widgets into your LibGuides pages using simple iframes or with our automatically generated code snippets. No special knowledge or wizardry required. Just simple cut and paste.
Our embedded widgets offer a pop-out option so that a patron can open the chat in a separate browser window while they browse your LibGuides pages. Since the patron clicks to get the pop-up, pop-up blockers will not block this window.
You can even show two or more LibraryH3lp widgets on the same LibGuides page! So if you have many librarians or departments, you can have as many widgets as it takes. Or you can preferentially display widgets depending on librarian availability, connecting patrons to specialists when available and to something more general like your reference desk otherwise.
You can staff LibraryH3lp chat widgets from any browser or XMPP/Jabber chat client. LibraryH3lp also offers unlimited concurrent operators, so you can have as many librarians as you'd like staffing your service.
