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: firstname.lastname@example.org
- GTalk: email@example.com
- ICQ: 347078118
I hope some folks find these services useful.
