Reminder: Please log in for summer shifts

It's summertime! And while the beach may be calling and tempting you to forget about the library, we would like to remind you of the importance of logging in for your AskAway shifts.

AskAway is minimally staffed over the summer, so missing a shift can seriously affect your fellow service providers.

Please take a moment to check the schedule, and make sure you know when you are expected on the service.

If you do find yourself alone on a shift, here are some steps you can take to get some assistance:

  • Look at the schedule, and see which institution you should be working with
  • Go to the institution's policy page, and contact their AskAway Coordinator to let them know about their missed shift
  • If the number of questions is overwhelming, call for reinforcements by clicking the swamped button
