Displaying a LibChat widget on the public A-Z Database List page

The public A-Z Database List page has two columns:

  • One column contains the list of your databases.
  • The other column is a sidebar containing different boxes. If you subscribe to LibAnswers, our virtual reference platform, you can add one of your LibChat widgets directly to this column -- no embed code required..
    • Embedded and Button widgets will appear in the Sidebar on your public A-Z Database List.
    • Slide-out widgets will appear on the left, right, or bottom of the page, depending upon their settings.
