New Help Desk Coming in 2023
HSLC will be switching to a new help desk platform in 2023.
When will HSLC start responding to support from the new help desk?
January 5, 2023

What does the change mean for library staff? 

Other than the emails you receive from HSLC support looking a little bit different, there will not be much change for library staff. You will still open tickets the same way you did before:
What action should libraries take to prepare for the new help desk?
Whitelist and by updating your allowed list.

What if you have tickets still pending from our current help desk?
HSLC staff will continue to respond to tickets in the current help desk until they are resolved.
