Collaborative Workshop on Reference Solutions

Collective wisdom is a powerful thing—harness it at the upcoming Reinvented Reference V, a one-day preconference sponsored by the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA).

This one day interactive workshop will address technology, staffing, collaboration, and assessment challenges in an interactive format. Come with your problems, barriers, hurdles and frustrations! You’ll leave with practical, concrete ideas from our expert panel—and your colleagues—that you can implement immediately at your library.

Event speakers include Bill Pardue, virtual services librarian at Arlington Heights (Ill.) Memorial Library; Char Booth, e-learning librarian at UC Berkeley; Lisa Ennis, systems librarian and assistant professor, University of Alabama at Birmingham; and Brian Matthews, user experience librarian, Georgia Tech Libraries.

The workshop will be held Friday, July 10, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. in conjunction with the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.  This is a ticketed event—you do not have to attend the ALA Annual Conference to participate in Reinvented Reference V, but you do need to register.
