InfoQuest Goes Live
The first collaborative text messaging reference service went live Monday, July 20. There are over 35 libraries of many types participating, each providing about 2 hours per week monitoiring the service. The pilot project runs through December 31, 2009 with no cost to members. The project is still looking for more members to participate. They hope to continue this as a full-fledged program starting January 2010.
If you would like to join, please contact Lori Bell at Alliance Library System at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be sent some informational documents and an agreement form to fill out with library information and your preferred coverage hours. If you
