This weekend traditionally marks a transition to summer: school is winding down and summer vacations are coming up. Before taking off, why not take time to brush up your Policy Page? We will once again be celebrating Policy Page Day, this time on Thursday, June 3. This is an opportunity to take your policy page for a spin – check all the links, be sure the information is up-to-date, and generally make sure it’s performing as expected.
A library's policy page is one of the key resources that ensures the proper working of the 24/7 Reference Cooperative. An informative policy page helps the Cooperative librarians do a better job answering questions for your patrons. However, over the course of time, we have found that libraries are not always consistent in how the policy pages are completed. So, to reduce confusion and ensure greater consistency, we have provided guidelines to help you fill out your library's policy page. You can find the guidelines in the QP wiki, at: http://wiki.questionpoint.org/Policy+Page+Guidelines
So next Thursday please take a few moments to review your library's policy page and make sure it is consistent with these guidelines. We will also be available via QP chat on Thursday to answer any questions you have as you review your policy page. You can find us online next Thursday at: http://www5.oclc.org/questionpoint/quality/ask.html (if we aren’t online, please do leave us an email question and we will get back to you).
To create or update your library's policy page, follow these instructions: http://www.questionpoint.org/crs/html/help/en/profile/pr_policy_task.html
Thanks in advance for helping our Cooperative provide the best service possible to your users by updating your library's policy page! If you have any questions about your policy page, please come chat with us this Thursday, or you can email me directly at email@example.com
