You can now not only E-mail your questions to a librarian but also actually chat with one. Like a teenager with her girlfriends! Only more serious.
Here’s what it looks like:
Joe Clark Initial Question/Comment: Skill-testing question of a sort: When will there be a way to suggest books for acquisition online?
Thank you for waiting. We will be with you shortly.

Librarian2: Hi Joe.
Librarian2: I don’t think I understand your question.
Librarian2: Can you elaborate?
Joe Clark: There used to be a way to suggest new books for the library to buy. That disappeared with the new (“improved”) computer system. When do we get it back?
Librarian2: now I understand….
Librarian2: We will be getting a new homepage in the fall.
Librarian2: I think suggesting new books will be one of the features available fairly soon after the launch.
Librarian2: I can’t really give you definite dates, I’m afraid.
Librarian2: You can always go into your branch and make the suggestions in person :)
Joe Clark: all right.
Librarian2: is there anything else I can help you with?
