We've looked extensively into the question during the past year; our Reference Archivist has been soliciting and collecting data on products folks are using, how well they like them, and what they are using them for. There is also a lot of discussion on the Reference and Outreach lists on this topic.

Altarama's RefTracker has come out as one product that can be well used by multiple types of archives/libraries/special collections.  It can be hosted or licensed for local implementation.  They have great customer service and are willing to set up trials so you can test out the software and all the features.  They have recently added in some features that are useful to phone/tablet users as well as connecting in with Skype.

Gimlet doesn't allow for multiple back and forth interactions and attachments although it looks great for quick one-off reference question/answers and for keeping reference stats.

Thanks for all your responses, folks.

I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations of systems/platforms specifically for recording reference questions (and answers) and putting together a searchable knowledge base? Seems like Gilmet might be good for this -any others?
