Viewing feedback for chats answered in a co-op

When you answer a chat from another library in your co-op, staff at that library can view the transcript and provide you with feedback. This can be helpful for assessing the quality of co-op chats, while also helping co-op staff to learn and improve. For example, a local librarian could use the feedback feature to explain a local policy or collection that could have helped answer the patron's question. This knowledge can then help co-op staff utilize those resources better in the future.


Logging into a co-op

  1. Log into your local LibAnswers site and click on LibChat in the navigation bar.
  2. From the dropdown, select the Login link for the co-op you want to add users to.
