ERef: E-MAIL reference http://www.ccsf.edu/library/eref.html
Simple e-mail program using a free CCSF provided program.
These e-mail questions go to our Google ERef account.
We generally check our ERef account once a day.
SUGGESTION BLOG: http://ccsflibrary.blogspot.com/
We use a free internet service at: http://blogspot.com. You can create your own blog.
Postings are sent to my e-mail account and they are moderated—they are reviewed before they are posted on the web. If they were not moderated, they would automatically appear on the web which is not a good idea!
IM, Instant Message Reference Service
“Instant messaging (IM) is a form of online communication that allows real-time (or close to real-time) interaction through personal
computers or mobile computing devices.”
The Library uses a free internet program called Meebo (www.meebo.com) that allows us to sign on to multiple IM services at the same time.
Meebo allows us to have an “embedded” chat box on a web page. Some IM programs allows you to attach a web cam, transfer files, send images. Meebo does not include these features.

Online Library Skills Workshops
We currently have one online library skills workshop—Workshop A (Finding books and other library materials using CityCat, the CCSF library's online catalog).
We use html, PHP (a web programming language), and Wink (creates instructional movies) to create these workshops.
Assignments are printed out and can be reviewed by librarians at any CCSF library. Students are also allowed the option of e-mailing their assignments.
Assignments cannot be viewed until the workshop is completed.
WHAT’S IN STORE FOR THE FUTURE?
