Behind the Text: Pulling Back the Curtain on Virtual Reference presentations

We would once again like to thank our panelists and our moderator, Peter Bromberg (Assistant Director, Princeton (NJ) Public Library), who made our sponsored program at ALA Annual 2011 in New Orleans (Behind the Text: Pulling Back the Curtain on Virtual Reference) possible.
