New Service Allows the Public to Pose Reference Question

jen writes \”
A story from the Chronicle says
Starting on Monday, members of the public will be
able to use the World Wide Web to seek answers
to reference questions from librarians around the
world, including some at college libraries.

The service, called QuestionPoint, will operate
through a Web browser and may make some visits
to the library unnecessary. The Library of Congress
and the Online Computer Library Center, better
known as OCLC, developed it. \”
