The library will be transitioning its virtual reference services to a different provider this week. Our virtual reference services allow you to receive research help from a librarian via text message or instant message. Until now, these services have been provided by Meebo, but Meebo was acquired by Google and will soon be discontinued. We’ve identified an excellent replacement and hope to make the transition with minimal fuss, but as you know, things don’t always go according to plan. Please be aware that there may be brief moments when your librarians are not available via text message or instant message. We thank you for your understanding and welcome your comments and suggestions, as always!
