The Motion Pictures and Television Reading Room at the Library of Congress is now open for live chat reference service.  Along with ten other LC reading rooms, MP&T is open from 2pm to 3pm EST - every day, M-F.  The Reading Room provides access and information services to an international community of film and television professionals, archivists, scholars and researchers.  The chat service features text chat and URL sharing and is soon to add an enhanced communications package including Voice, Video and Application Sharing.  The 11 LC reading rooms featuring chat from 2 to 3, M-F are:

       Geography and Maps
       Motion Pictures
       Manuscripts
       Recorded Sound
       Science
       Local History and Genealogy
       American Memory
       Business
       Prints and Photographs
       Humanities and Social Sciences
       Serials and Government Publications

Go to http://www.loc.gov/rr/askalib/ and click on any reading room.  An email form will open up with a chat button on the right that connects to a live librarian.  The enhanced communications package is a result of collaboration between LC, OCLC, and Convey Systems, developer of "On Demand" customer service software for the Internet.
