Title
Librarian in a box : the use of electronic mail for reference
Source
Reference services review. 21(1993) no.1, S.15-18
Year
1993
Abstract
An indication of the growing awareness of electronic mail is the proliferation of library-specific bulletin boards and computer conferences an established electronic networks like Bitnet and Internet. Interloans are achieved by e-mail. Online searchers can subscribe to DIALMAIL and communicate with Dialog or other searchers. Search results can be sent via DIALMAIL instead of waiting for them to be sent in printed form. BRS has a similar service. Discusses how reference librarians are integrating e-mail into the reference process. Describes the Electronic Access to Reference Service at the University of Maryland Health Sciences Library; 2 libraries at the University of Richmond; academic libraries in Philadelphia and others. Provides statistics on the use of e-mail reference services
