Library help available through instant messaging
Posted March 9, 2006; 10:25 a.m.
The Princeton University Library is offering a new way to ask reference questions -- through instant messaging.
Students, faculty and staff can use their AOL, Yahoo, MSN or ICQ accounts for live reference assistance by adding "LIBCHATPUL" to their buddy lists.
A librarian will respond to the chat service from 3 to 11 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday and 7 to 11 p.m. Sunday. Hours are subject to change based on demand.
The library also answers questions through e-mail, by phone at (609) 258-4820 or in person at the reference desk in Firestone Library.
More information on the instant messaging service is available online.
