Article by Genevieve Marshall looks at the use of instant messaging systems as a fast and easy way for students to ask questions and how librarians at various schools are using the system to respond within minutes. Marshall quotes Debbie Malone, director of Trexler Library at DeSales, who said DeSales is considering using AIM, America Online's Instant Messenger, next year for reference chat. According to Malone, it's one more way to reach students, plus it's free.
