Fantastic Voyage: Reference Service in an Ever-Shrinking Print Environment Program McCormick Place Convention Center
S102a
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.

David Tyckoson, Associate Dean, Henry Madden Library,California State University, Fresno
Nicolette Warisse Sosulski, Business Librarian, Portage District Library (MI)
Melissa DeWild, Collection Development Manager, Kent District Library (MI)
Moderator: Rebecca Vnuk, Editor for Reference and Collection Management, Booklist
