Is Your Library Using the Correct Links and Icons for POWER Library Services?
Topic image
Most institutions link to the "List all" or "Help me choose" list of e-resources, but did you know you can link directly to an individual e-resource? Every e-resource icon and link is available for your use on your website, Google sites, etc. You can even share them in your blogs and social media posts!

Chat, Text, and Email a Librarian
Did you hear that the Chat with a Librarian service now includes text and email? It's true! It's easy to make these services available to your users by adding a link to Chat with a Librarian with the new icon that includes text and email.
PSSST! Does your institution contribute staff time to the Chat service? There is a special link and widget for your institution. Please contact support for assistance so we can help you make sure you are using the correct links.
