Tips on participating
There is no sign up! This is an informal thing.
- You can just choose your favorite social Q&A site, create your account there and then just start answering.
- Whenever possible, refer to libraries as part of your answer (as long as it's appropriate to the situation). Invite the asker to "find more at the library," etc. ID yourself as a librarian.
- After answering, share your answers with your colleagues, either by linking to your answers in Twitter, using the #slametheboards hashtag or by joining and participating in the Slam the Boards group in Facebook.
- Keep the tone friendly. We're not there to put the boards out of business (well, I'm not!). And we wouldn't.
- Read this blog entry pointing out that we need to get to know the community we're interacting with.
- In your tag/signature, mention your own library, but also mention sources that let readers find their own libraries. Consider:
- PublicLibraries.com list of local libraries:
- NCES Public Library Locator:
- UK Public Libraries on the web:

I'd also suggest adding a link to publiclibraries.com, which is the easiest to remember url for library web pages.
Also, is there a good page with a simple url for library chat and IM reference pages? There's a great list at http://www.libsuccess.org/index.php?title=Online_Reference#Libraries_Using_Virtual_Reference_Services
I guess I could tiny url it.
