Collaborate to Succeed: Implementing New Reference Services with SPLAT
PowerPoint Presentation

Libraries face shrinking budgets, increased use and user demand for trending resources. SPLAT (Special Projects Library Action Team) is supported by the Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICFL), the state agency responsible for assisting libraries. The members of SPLAT are innovation representatives, comprised of library staff who search and experiment with SM trends and online tools, learn and share the best ways to integrate them into the reference services at all types of libraries. These efforts have yielded enhanced reference services throughout Idaho, encouraged policy change and increased positive user experiences.
Presenters: Amy Vecchione and Memo Cordova of Boise State University, ID
