MEEBO comes to SCC Library

You might notice the Meebo chat reference recently offered by the library. It's an online messaging tool for librarians to assist students online. The librarian would respond to Meebo messages from the students with links to articles, titles of books or other information. This allows students quick access to an information search specialist, without ever having to leave their seat! Meebo is great for sensitive topics where an in-person interview might be intimidating to the student or for the student who is multi-tasking at their computer.
