Meebo on the library website

I continue to be amazed at how well Meebo works as a way to connect with our clients.

This is my second week working the reference desk from two to four on Tuesday afternoon and both days someone has contacted us (I was on desk today with Marcus, our student worker and he got the question) using the Meebo widget we have on the library homepage.Today someone wanted to know if we had a scanner in the library, which we answered that we did. Then about ten minutes later, a non-traditional student came in. I ended up helping him do the scanning. I thought it all the more impressive since it was one of our older students. This really must have appeal for a range of ages.
