VRDG at ALA Midwinter 2011

RUSA MARS' Virtual Reference Discussion Group at ALA Midwinter 2011
4-5:30 pm, Saturday, Jan. 8th
San Diego Convention Center, Room 9

Ellen Filgo, Baylor Libraries' E-Learning Librarian will kick off the discussion for the Virtual Reference Discussion Group at MidWinter.  Ellen has become a class Twitter-based reference librarian, joining classes at Baylor University real-time via Twitter to provide links, resources and answers to questions. By having a librarian virtually embedded in class, the students are able to draw on a wider web of information both during and after class discussion.  Ellen will highlight her experiences, review best practices and share ideas for additional applications.

After Ellen's presentation, we will discuss her ideas and other virtual reference topics. If there are any topics you are particularly interested in discussing at MidWinter, please share by commenting to this post.

See you in San Diego!
