Listed below are links to weblogs that reference A national virtual reference service for the U.S?:

Comments

We developed a proposal for such a service that our Congressman was going to help us obtain an appropriation for, however, the new Congress will no longer fund "earmarks". So, we are currently looking for another source of funding. If interested in our proposal, please let me know.

Having National Virtual Reference makes so much sense and would be so much more efficient than the way it's done now. I think we all know we need to collaborate more, it's just getting over the idea that our users/funders don't want us to accidentally help anyone other than the people who fund that library. We seem to be able to ignore this issue when it comes to statewide services, so why not a national one. Actually, I think international is really the way to go, but that seems to be an impossible dream.
