Back-up help available for Info Desk

Submitted by Jean Simmons

When you’re working at the Information Desk,

are you reluctant to interrupt another staff person

to get help with a question?


   Remember Pidgin 


One of Reference’s primary roles is to help people with their research.  So it’s okay to interrupt—especially if a pidgin green light is on!  To see who’s readily available,  go to the start menu and then pidgin, to get phone numbers and to see  who’s signed in.  (Pidgin is also available on Circulation Desk computers.)


Even if there are no green lights, please don’t hesitate to refer a research question to someone in Reference.  If it’s off hours, encourage the questioner to send queries electronically.  (This mailbox is checked several times a day.)
