Reference Resurrected: Models for the 21st-Century College Library
The shift from traditional reference desk activity has become an accepted reality in most academic libraries. Librarians now offer a variety of reference services including live chat, “roving” reference in the library, embedded or personal librarian service for classes, and research services in residence halls, gyms, and campus centers. This program will focus on the challenges that college libraries face in deciding how to provide and assess reference services that best meet local needs without straining resources.
