Mar'15: Reference as Outreach e-Forum (RSS Management of Reference)

March 10 & 11, 2015
10am EST / 9am CDT / 8am MDT / 7am PDT

Reference services have evolved over the years, and current best practices inform the broadening of library services by building relationships with campus units and cross-training staff to create a synergistic combination that redefines the research experience of our community by meeting them where they are. It is therefore critical to look at each interaction as a form of outreach that can lead to additional opportunities for collaboration, instruction and engagement. Join us for this forum where we will share best practices, tips and tricks in expanding reference services beyond library walls.

The e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of interest facilitated by a moderator, through the discussion list. The e-forum discussion list works like a listserv; register your email address with the list, and you will receive messages and communicate with other participants via email. Instructions for registration are available at: Participation is free and open to anyone, and we hope to see you there! The forum typically ends in the early afternoon, once discussion slows down.
