Free Webinar – Embrace the Evolution : Adapting Reference Service to New Technology

Date: Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Time: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Place: Online at https://infopeople.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=393
Presenter: Toby Greenwalt
Cost: Free

Portable Internet devices and persistent access to online resources is changing the way people learn. With that comes significant shifts to the way people use library spaces and services. Rather than fearing this disruption, libraries should lean into the change. Through mobile library services, flipped and co-learning experiences, and virtual reference tools, libraries can continue to demonstrate the importance of reference skills. Join digital strategist Toby Greenwalt for an exploration of current and emerging techniques.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Identify the opportunities presented by changes in public technology use
  • Determine strategies for integrating technology in the reference workflow
  • Be able to tie reference service into long-term plans for comprehensive library service

Join us as we exchange stories and share best practices for maintaining this essential element of library service.

This webinar will be of interest to all types of libraries offering reference services.
