Make Ethel Your Buddy
The instant messaging reference service, Ask Ethel, is expanding beyond the library website. Meebo users have always been able add “ekslibrary” to their buddylists so that they could call up the reference librarians anytime they logged onto their Meebo accounts. Now AOL and Yahoo users can do the same.
Just add ekslibrary as a buddy to your AIM, Yahoo, or Meebo IM account and you too can Ask Ethel about how to find the information you need without even having to go the library home page. Just to make things even easier, you might want to put ekslibrary in a special group, such as Library or Wingate or Reasearch.
