Instant Messaging update

The reference department has set up a "chat widget," which allows anyone to chat with a librarian at the reference desk by going to the "Ask Us" page. This chat doesn't require the user to have any kind of account with any instant messaging service. I think this is pretty nifty.

Additionally, I offer chat service from my office to students and faculty in my subject areas. My IM accounts:


  • AIM: umdlibraryrory

  • MSN: umdlibraryrory@hotmail.com

  • GTalk: umdlibraryrory@gmail.com

  • ICQ: 347078118

I hope some folks find these services useful.
