Patron-Centered Reference Librarianship: Using Patrons' Interests to Motivate Information Literacy Learning

Sunday, January 26, 2014
8:30 am to 10:00 am, US/Eastern

Although widely acknowledged that library education should be patron-centered, serious discussions of patron-centered reference librarianship are virtually non-existent. Now’s your chance to gather with colleagues to share best practices and strategies for engaging users in patron-centered learning at the reference desk. What does patron-centered learning mean? What strategies do you use to connect with users at the reference desk? How can we motivate authentic learning within the context of reference? Learn from others and share your own strategies for connecting with users as unique individuals, not just information problems to be solved. Facilitator: Kevin Michael Klipfel, CA State Univ, Chico
