I created this page to better organize the list of libraries that use IM reference. It is quite a long list and seems to be growing. Crios

Nice work! I'm glad someone took the initiative to better organize it. I wish I'd had the time to do it myself. Meredith 15:04, 3 December 2006 (EST)

  • For Southern Illinois State University (Illinois), they use something called Morris Messenger. It sounds like this might be a browser based chat service. Can anybody confirm this? Should it be included in IM ref? Crios
    • It looks like their library is called Morris and they are just using IM. Meredith 08:59, 4 December 2006 (EST)
      • I called them and I was told that it was browser based chat (like questionpoint). Should this be included in IM Reference? Byt the way... how do you get the date and time after your edit? Do you just type it in or is there somekind of code that you can use? Crios
        • Hmmm... interesting... their site is deceptive then. To get your signature and date stamp, just enter four tildes (~~~~). Meredith 16:54, 4 December 2006 (EST)

Is it really necesary to include the IM client that the libraries are using in house? I don't think it really matters which app they are using, just which IM service. Chris 10:15, 31 January 2007 (EST)
