We invite you to join My Info
Quest!(http://www.myinfoquest.info/libraries.htm)  This is a new library
service we believe to be the first multitype collaborative text
messaging reference service of its kind. The Alliance Library System
(www.alliancelibrarysystem.com <http://www.alliancelibrarysystem.com/> )
in East Peoria, Ill., has partnered with over 50 participating libraries
including the following ALS members:  Alpha Park Public Library
District, Blackhawk East LRC, Bradley University, Illinois Central
College, Peoria Public Library, Bloomington Public Library, University
of Illinois at Chicago Library of the Health Science-Chicago and Quincy
Public Library.  ALS worked with Altarama Information Systems
(www.altarama.com <http://www.altarama.com/> ); and WebClarity Software,
Inc. (www.webclarity.info <http://www.webclarity.info/> ), developers of
PeopleWhere (www.peoplewhere.com <http://www.peoplewhere.com/> ), to
build this new reference service. The pilot program launched on July 20
and will extend until Dec. 31. Thanks to the proceeds from the online
Handheld Librarians conference, participants will be able to participate
in the project at no charge and the project will continue from
January-December 2010!  The patrons of approximately 50 libraries from
all over the U.S. are now able to text a question from their mobile
phones to 309-222-7740 and a "real, live librarian" will respond within
minutes. The service is free of charge, but standard text messaging
rates apply. Answers are sent to cell phones by librarians in 320
characters or less, or the equivalent of two 160-character text
messages. The hours of service are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-10 p.m.
and Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.  With more libraries, we can extend these
hours.  For an information package and to join, contact Lori Bell at ALS
at lbell at alliancelibrarysystem.com.
