Text a Librarian was developed for libraries on Mosio's award winning mobile platform.
With the goal of simplifying mobile reference, Mosio handles the task of maintaining mobile carrier relationships while offering an easy-to-use, online technology enabling reference librarians to collaborate, receive and respond to patron text messaging inquiries.
By offering mobile text message reference to patrons, libraries become available to patrons wherever they are, using their preferred method of communication.
Text a Librarian is accessible via any internet-connected computer.
There is no hardware to buy, no software to download and no knowledge of how to send a text message is required on the part of librarians.
For librarians who have and want to use their iPhone, iPod Touch, BlackBerry or other smart phone while working in the library, Text a Librarian offers features and functions enabling them to do so.
