Feb: Readers' Advisory: How Do You Measure Up? (Library Journal)

February 4, 2014, 2pm ET

The results are in! Be among the first to hear what we learned about readers’ advisory service in public libraries during a recent survey. Is RA here to stay, or is its value declining? Does every library in the country (other than yours) have a fully staffed readers’ advisory department? What digital strategies are libraries using to suggest books to readers? What book-oriented programs do libraries offer?

Join us for an engaging discussion where we’ll discuss the answers to these questions. Panel members will share their reactions to the survey results and provide insights about what it all means for the readers in your community. Whether you believe that bringing books and readers together is at the heart of what libraries do, or whether you wonder just how important this work really is -- you will not want to miss this program.
