NLB launches an SMS Reference Service

Read the story from CNA (11 Apr 2006):
From wherever they are, users can now SMS the library their information needs.

Questions can range from specific ones, such as "What is date of birth of George Washington?", to something more general like "Where do I find information on Singapore and Malaysia mass media?"

And depending on how elaborate it is, replies can be received within a few minutes to a day.

The number to send your SMS is 9178 7792. Your usual SMS charges apply of course. Yet another example of how technology is making possibilities for library services into reality.
