What do we think about adding Instant Messaging to our list of "things"? We'd be able to promote our new "Ask It" chat reference service...

Just a thought.

UPDATED 4/1/09

We could introduce some of the free IM/chat services out there as well as skype. Or maybe also include a link that defines some of the chat lingo. Similar to the way chat was presented in Arizona's Baker's Dozen.

  1. I don't know if that's a big enough "thing". What tutorial could it be combined with?

  2. VOIP would be cool, but like creating podcasts, it would be difficult for folks to do at the library ATM. I think it should definitely be mentioned as a possibility for connecting with others both socially and professionally.

  3. I like the idea of chat being introduced since we could then link it to the 'ask a librarian' service we offer.
