Skype (VOIP) at the Library

"Most libraries now have access to the Internet but not all are able to afford a toll free line to help patrons living outside their area code. The free or low fee long distance services could be a pretty attractive option for libraries looking to provide this type of service or to expand existing services."

If Skype takes off and becomes as popular as IM, it could help with virtual reference services even for those near the library.
