From About L-net: Oregon libraries network (emphasis in original):
So I'm guessing other states have services like this?
Librarians online work at libraries all over Oregon.
You can learn more about who we are by looking at our profiles.
Evenings, weekends, and early mornings you will be connected to librarians all over the United States. You may also be connected to a librarian from outside Oregon if L-net is busy.
The person you are talking to may not be local, but will still be able to help you with resources at your library...
The home page for L-net has links for an L-net for kids and teens, homework resources, colleges and universities, librarians faced with questions they'd like to hand off, more. I'm on the fly right now, so haven't followed the links to check them out. But I thought I'd toss this post online as part of the continuing discussion on the role of libraries (and, by extension, librarians).
