Summary of Current Activities 2012-2013

1. The committee had two productive discussions, a virtual one for Midwinter and a F2F one at Annual on creating a survey to learn what reference models are in place for all types of libraries and if any evaluation is occurring. Jason Kruse, incoming chair, will take the lead.

2. An ad hoc committee, with a member from ERUS, a member from VRS, and other volunteers has created a survey to get a snapshot of the current state of virtual reference. The draft was shared with ERUS and VRS at Annual for input. ERUS member Terri Miller hopes to get it out by the end of the summer.
