When I go to check email and see that my account logged out twenty minutes ago and a student tried to reach me from the classroom with a citation question, or a teacher took a shot and emailed asking for a resource (or even sent up a flare for help with a technical problem), I realize the opportunity was lost. This drives me crazy.
I know our CCHS Learning Commons wiki gets a lot of traffic during the school day, and I have wanted to figure out how to make it more effective as a communication tool.
Browsing through my RSS feed this afternoon a fascinating post from Information Tyrannosaur caught my eye. Check out his post on using Meebo in the library :
Meebo Bar for Libraries | Information Tyrannosaur
This is a really useful description of Meebo:
I have seen Meebo on university sites and our regional public library system site, but never really thought about integrating it into our web presence. This is going to be a fascinating trial.
Information Tyrannosaur closed his post with a question.
Is anyone currently using this? Would this be something that could be useful at your library?
We are trying it! I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks Information Tyrannosaur!
