Changes coming for Ask a Librarian
Have you noticed the little warning at the top of our Ask a Librarian chat boxes? We certainly have! Our Ask a Librarian chat service is powered by Meebo, a free online instant messaging service that was recently purchased by Google. Unfortunately, Google has decided to discontinue Meebo Messenger, the part of Meebo that we rely on for our chat reference service, effective July 11, 2012.
Don't worry, though! We are actively pursuing a replacement for our service, and have every intention of having the replacement up and running before Meebo disappears on July 11. And whatever solution we come up with will still work exactly the same from your perspective: click on the chat box and get live help from a librarian here at the Cushwa-Leighton Library. No account necessary, no software installation required. Just click and ask!
