The Legacy of Library Elders – What Could, Should, Would It Be?

Saturday, June 23, 2012
4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

US/Pacific (-7)

One mission of the Retired Members Round Table is to foster lifelong professional involvement and networking. One librarian has been tracking elder librarians and gathering their memories of relationships with patrons over the past decades. Remember when we were just beginning to use online databases? Arro Smith has videoed librarians remembering – both acts of memory and the fact of video lead us to the historical aspects of our long involvement in our profession. Join us to watch the videos, and listen. Then offer your own ideas, and opinions of how this and we may affect the future of librarianship.
