When you see the green circle at the top left corner of the chat box, a library staff member is live on the service, available to help you!
Use the little curved arrow to "pop" the whole chat box out to a separate window that you can make larger.
Use the little envelope to email yourself the entire chat history for later use.
The UASC Librarian, whose office is located in the Special Collections reading area, may also be available to assist you (appointment recommended -- 566-0536 Simon Lloyd email@example.com). Appointments with UASC staff for visits outside of scheduled hours and for in-depth reference consultations may be arranged.
