“Text a Librarian” Service is available for JB MDL community!
Responding to the popularity of text messaging, troops and members of the military community at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst can now ask questions and get information from the FSS Librar-e and Resource Commons by text message.
For patrons who are unable to ask a librarian in person or online, or those who simply prefer texting over talking, the “Text a Librarian” service provides a convenient option for getting info on their mobile device from the professional reference librarians at the Joint Base.
The new service provides an easy-to-use interface for our librarians and maintains the privacy of our patrons’ information. All the questions and answers will be kept as an anonymous ID without the phone numbers for an archive purpose only.
Using the Service is easy! Text askjblib to 66746 for instructions.
