According to an article in today’s Wall Street Journal entitled “YU Luv Texts, H8 Calls”, the “average 13- to 17-year-old sends and receives 3,339 texts a month–more than 100 a day” (Nielsen Co., the media research firm).  And, since many of these teenagers will soon be college students, should all academic libraries be looking into using services like Text a Librarian?   Elms College doesn’t currently have a texting reference service in place.  Have other academic libraries found texting reference services to be useful?
