The Reference Research Forum is a popular and valuable ALA Annual Conference program. Attendees have the opportunity to learn about innovative research projects conducted in reference services including user behavior, electronic services, reference effectiveness and assessment, and organizational structure and personnel.
For examples of projects presented at past Forums, please see the Committee’s website:http://connect.ala.org/node/64439
The Committee employs a blind review process to select three projects for 20-minute presentations, followed by open discussion. Identifying information will not be shared with reviewers until after final selection of projects. Selected submissions must be presented in person at the Forum during ALA Annual in New Orleans, LA.
