Use LibCal Appointments to Book Virtual Help/Reference Sessions
In this session:
With the changes in how we are interacting with patrons, learn how to use LibCal to allow users to book Online Help Sessions with Appointments. We will look at using LibCal's Appointments module to make it easy for your patrons to book one-on-one virtual appointments with you. Whatever your online hosting service is, from Skype to Zoom to Screensharing in LibAnswers, we will look at how to make this service more accessible to your patrons. Some settings that we discuss are Admin only, but all are encouraged to attend.
