Combining SMS and the catalog

The January 2009 issue of Computers in Libraries has an article “Using Text Messages to Communicate with Patrons”. It has some interesting ideas about how to combine SMS and the library catalog. I encourage all of you to go and check it out. I especially like Project One: Send to Phone where patrons can send call numbers to their phone. I don’t know that I would use that instead of the old fashioned pen and paper, but it does seem more environmentally friendly.

Any thoughts?
