arsclist LC Recorded Sound Reference Center "chat" reference

Please excuse the cross postings

The Recorded Sound Reference Center at the Library of Congress is now
open for live chat reference service.  Along with ten other LC reading
rooms, Recorded Sound is open from 2pm to 3pm EST - every day, M-F. 
They accept research-oriented questions about the commercial and
archival audio holdings of the Library of Congress.  The collection
includes over 2 million items encompassing audio formats from cylinders
to CDs.  The chat service features text chat and URL sharing and is soon
to add an enhanced communications package including Voice, Video and
Application Sharing.  The 11 LC reading rooms featuring chat from 2 to
3, M-F are:

*	Geography and Maps=20
*	Motion Pictures=20
*	Manuscripts
*	Recorded Sound
*	Science
*	Local History and Genealogy
*	American Memory
*	Business
*	Prints and Photographs
*	Humanities and Social Sciences
*	Serials and Government Publications=20

Go to http://www.loc.gov/rr/askalib/ and click on any reading room.  An
email form will open up with a chat button on the right that connects to
live librarian.  The enhanced communications package is a result of
collaboration between LC, OCLC, and Convey Systems, developer of "On
Demand" customer service software for the Internet.
