IM a Librarian from Facebook or MySpace

We have answered well over 600 questions already through the NEIU Library’s instant message (IM) service, and we just launched it last fall. Anytime the Library is open, you can send an IM to an NEIU librarian and get an immediate answer.

Now, we’re expanding the service to offer IM boxes right in our Facebook and MySpace pages. We realize that many of you spend a lot of time in these social networking sites, so we’ve made it easy for you to find us there, too. Here’s how:
