Chatbot serves as the first point of contact for your online patrons, guiding them through options, and passing them on to a resource or staff member as needed. Chatbot can route patron questions to specific chat departments, prompt your user to create a new LibAnswers ticket, execute a LibGuides or LibAnswers search, or even direct them to a LibCal resource or LibWizard form. Chatbot can be used whether or not your library currently uses live chat operators.
