Though different types of libraries serve different populations, we still all have one goal in common: to provide the best possible services and support to our patrons in order to help them be successful!
We invite you to submit proposals for sessions (45 min) and Lightning Talks (10 min) relating to reference service.
Possible topics might include:• Specialized reference (business, legal, medical, etc.)• Answering difficult/unusual reference questions• Providing reference remotely• Unique and/or useful reference resources• The art of making referrals• Serving unique populations (multilingual, refugee, etc.)
Sessions should be designed to run for a total of 45 minutes including Q&A; longer programs/workshops will be considered on a case-by-case basis (if a longer program/workshop is desired, please include that in the Comments field).
Lightning Talks should be designed to last no more than 10 minutes.
Proposals will be accepted until February 15, 2019.
