Humanising the Library Portal

Good Evening I was wondering how on earth the Library could minimise the gap between the students and the librarian. We do Facebook, we blog, we youtube and many others. I still believe that we need to bring this gap-minimising thing to the next level. Alas, I remember one little app. that permits communication between two parties (as if you can communicate alone!) – meebo me widget

In geekspeak, it’s an IM unifier. In plain English, it’s a one-stop shop for all your instant-messaging needs. Which is to say that Meebo puts all your IM clients — the individual programs that make instant-messaging services incompatible with one another — into one browser window. There’s no need to download all the different apps (MSN, AOL/ICQ, Yahoo, Jabber/Gtalk) to your computer to have any and all types of IM conversations. Available in four dozen languages.

In the past, perhaps due to network issues, this little app. has not been so useful. Connection Time-Out, Access Denied and so on. Well. it’s the network issue – security and bla, bla, bla. As time passes by, network admin is being lenient I think… Library has no problem accessing meebo. Maybe if… should in the future we get time-out issue again, I will need to ask our glorious network admin to allow access of this site to one single workstation – Muhamad Hafiz’s (He’s the one that will take care of any enquiries and requests). I am not into this chit-chatting thing. That’s all things of the past… (of those who remember en_mun… Selamat Maju Jaya). Here’s the setup screen… very easy no hanky panky stuff. Simple and straight forward:

Just give your widget a name and username – registration and such can come later. This one is free and is a no brainer… After that, meebo will generate your widget embedding code. Copy and paste to your web. Super Easy. Then you will have your widget like this:

Easy kan????
