Text a Librarian and QuestionPoint to Partner Up

Hot off the presses comes the announcement this morning that Mosio and OCLC have agreed to work together to offer Mosio's Text a Librarian product to QuestionPoint subscribers. The announcement I've just received in my email didn't mention too many specifics about what this really means. I'm hopeful that for those of us who work at institutions subscribing to QuestionPoint already can now add on the Text a Librarian service and see the questions appear in the same web page as our email questions and chat transcript archives.

Was this announced at ALA:MW or is there a press release somewhere?

Ahniwa: It came through on the QuestionPoint list from Susan McGlamery. She copied the text of a press release (which I couldn't find on OCLC's or Mosio's site yet).

Another email from Susan McGlamery to the list indicates that March 2010 is some sort of a start date.

I noticed the email after I commented, of course. :)

I did find a copy of the press release online, here: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2010/01/prweb3447344.htm
