The emergence of live online reference is a significant development for librarianship. Next-generation digital reference services allow librarians to talk in chat areas, demonstrate Web sites, provide useful links, and escort patrons through elaborate searches. The richly evolved workspace lets the librarian e-mail transcripts of sessions, store information about patrons' interests, see who is in line, find out who else is on duty, refer a question to a subject expert, and display links to related Web sites.
