There have been a few glitches with connecting to the Ask A Librarian chat box in the last week or so. Pidgin shows that you're online, but in reality you're not - the chat box on the library web pages isn't active.
This appears to be random, so I suggest you check the UML homepage after you sign in for your shift, to make sure the widget is active. If not, try logging out of Pidgin & logging back in. If that doesn't work, please call me or the HelpDesk.
I got a chat on VR today from a patron who couldn't get into Dafoe. I sent him/her Katherine's video on how to get to the alternate entrance. You can find it here: http://youtu.be/xXJc5fY73gk
I can switch with you if you still need someone. I will be on vacation on Tuesday, April 17th and hoping to find someone to do my VR from3 pm to 4 pm

I am hoping to go to the Elsevier lunchtime meeting in Dafoe which happens to be my VR time slot, so I was wondering if anyone would be willing to trade a shift with me for that time.
If you are willing to trade, please contact me so we can discuss!
Many thanks in advance,
