LOC launches “Ask a Librarian”

Wired has an article on a new service formed by the Library of Congress and more than 60 participant libraries around the world. It sounds like virtual reference, but with a common interface for all 60 libraries. It will be open around the clock, making use of the difference in time zones at different libraries. This site, for the Global Reference Network, describes the project and says it is called QuestionPoint. However, the web site for Question Point seems to be product support.
