BEGIN:VCALENDAR METHOD:PUBLISH PRODID:-//ALA Conference Scheduler//My Schedule//EN CALSCALE:GREGORIAN VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Fantastic Voyage: Reference Service in an Ever-Shrinking Print Environment DESCRIPTION:Once upon a time, reference questions were answered entirely with print reference sources. Libraries built large reference collections for the purpose of providing potential answers to user needs – and reference publishers produced the dictionaries, encyclopedias, and other tools that filled those collections. Today’s reference librarians rely less and less on print resources, but print reference collections still occupy prime space in most libraries. How are libraries managing their collections – and their users – in today’s reference environment? Speakers will talk about measuring the use of print reference materials\; circulating reference collections\; bookstore-like shelving for reference collections\; and reference service in a completely print-free environment.\n\nSpeakers:\nDavid Tyckoson, Associate Dean, Henry Madden Library,California State University, Fresno\nNicolette Warisse Sosulski, Business Librarian, Portage District Library (MI)\nMelissa DeWild, Collection Development Manager, Kent District Library (MI)\nModerator: Rebecca Vnuk, Editor for Reference and Collection Management, Booklist\n\nModerator: Rebecca Vnuk, Reference and Collection Management Editor, Booklist\n\nSession URL: LOCATION:McCormick Place Convention Center - S102a DTSTART:20130701T153000Z DTEND:20130701T163000Z END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
