Keeping it Real in a Virtual World: Managing and Promoting Your Online Reference Collection

When: 
Sunday, June 30, 2013
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, US/Central

As reference sources continue to migrate from print to online, librarians face challenges in managing and promoting these new online reference collections. Increased cost, restrictive subscription models, less visibility, and increasing use of mobile devices and apps are just a few of the issues being encountered in all types of libraries. Gather with colleagues to discuss how we can “keep it real” and acquire, manage, and promote online reference collections that provide real, valuable information for our community members.
