Reference Rising: Problem-solving Challenges and Opportunities in Reference Programming

When: Friday, December 4, 2015 from 9 - 1:30

Where: CSU Channel Islands

Have you ever tried to bring new reference programming into your library only to have it go unexpectedly wrong? Did you implement a new way of conducting the reference interview and learn something new about your students and faculty? How have you adapted to keep reference services thriving in the competitive information resources environment? How has your library come together to overcome the inevitable obstacles that arise from experimentation?

Join us to hear about how your fellow librarians have risen from the ashes to provide excellent reference programming!

Registration information will be posted here soon, or if you subscribe to the mailing list, watch your email.
