Cal State Fullerton (CA) has a new program that no doubt will prove intriguing to students..."IM'in To The Library."

It is keeping up with demand better than Matthew Mallard, the coordinator of "IM'IN to the Library" had expected. With the help of "Meebo" students will be able reach the librarian without leaving their desktop. Meebo is a Web messenger that allows the user to log in to all the instant message screen names from AIM, Yahoo, MSN, GTalk, ICQ and Jabber at the same time and chat for free without downloading or installing the instant messengers.

Whether at home or school, or while typing in the Pollak Library, by logging on to "Meebo.com," students will be able to chat with the Cal State Fullerton librarian and access their entire online instant messenger buddy list.

"We decided to go with 'Meebo' because it is open and easy to use," Mallard said.
