Call for Survey Participants
Are there any librarians who are willing to take our survey regarding “Reference as Place?” – it would be greatly appreciated! All names will be separated from survey responses; if you prefer to not include your name and e-mail address for increased privacy, that’s okay too!
CARLDIG-S wants to hear from you!
As the Reference Discussion Interest Group of CARL we are surveying academic librarians across the state regarding their reference service points. In recent years, reference services have seen a trend towards moving away from the traditional reference desk and implementing alternative desk and service models. We are interested in what is really happening across California in academic reference. Survey results will be shared at our fall program, “Reference as Place?” on December 6, 2013 at California State University, Fullerton.

If you have a unique reference model and are interested in sharing, keep an eye out for our “call for proposals” in the fall of 2013 where we will be seeking presenters for our fall program.
