Steve Coffman and Linda Arret have written a two part series that attempts
to "...step back and take a look at the big picture - to see where we have

purposes we set for ourselves when we began this brave new way of doing
reference not so very long ago."

Part 1:

Coffman, Steve, and Linda Arrett. To Chat or Not to Chat - Taking Another
