Research help by instant messaging

In mid-April we announced an instant-messaging IM service, where you can chat with the librarian who is working at the reference desk during the times that the desk is staffed.

I have decided to offer research help by instant messaging from my office as well. So if you are working on a writing project or a project in journalism, linguistics, or information design that requires some kind of research, or if you want to recommend a book or a database or ask a question that I might know the answer to, you can IM me in my office as long as I'm here.

My IM screennames at work are:

AIM: umdlibraryrory
MSN: umdlibraryrory
YM: umdlibraryrory
GTalk: rlitwin@gmail.com

Pop me a message just to let me know you are reading this.... I don't know if anybody is reading this blog at this point....
