Libraries and Online Learning: an ALCTS Midwinter Symposium
8:30 am to 4:30 pm, US/Pacific
Libraries and learners have long been engaged in a successful partnership. Never has this partnership been more important or wide-ranging than in today's online environment. This symposium offers a unique opportunity to engage in an important discussion of the role of learning in our libraries.
From local public libraries to national and transnational digital public libraries, from primary schools to research universities, libraries increasingly provide for learners' virtual educational experiences. In this symposium attendees will learn to foster the strategic relationships possible between libraries and online learners.
