Registration Closed

What: "Hacking Reference: Engaging the 'Whole' Student"
When: Friday, December 5, 2014
Where: Founder's Hall, Mt. San Antonio College, 1100 N Grand Ave, Walnut, CA 91789
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

There will be presentations highlighting how libraries are “hacking” the provision of reference service through non-traditional means. Presentations will be followed by "speed-hacking" rounds where presenters will have the opportunity to interact with program participants. 

Our awesome slate includes:
  • "Utilizing Pinterest as a reference tool" by Vivian Linderman (Long Beach City College)

  • "Mario hacks the shush castle" by Paul Stenis, Marc Vinyard, Jaimie Beth Colvin, and Mary Ann Naumann (Pepperdine University)

  • "ANTswers: Your interactive FAQ" by Danielle Kane (University of California, Irvine)

  • "From ticks to tableau: Hacking reference data so it screams" by Brett Bodemer (Cal Poly San Luis Obispo)

  • "Makerspaces and 3D Printing" by Francisco Vargas and David Hedden (Long Beach Public Library)
