DLS DG webinar - "But I've Never Met You!": Serving Graduate Students from a Distance"

Please join the ACRL Distance Learning Section (DLS) Discussion Group for our upcoming online event:


"But I've Never Met You!": Serving Graduate Students from a Distance"

Friday, March 30th 10:00 am – 12:00 pm


Working with graduate students online? Want to gain new ideas, share your innovations, and vent your frustrations? Join the Distance Learning Section Discussion Group’s Spring Forum! We’ll start with an experienced keynote speaker, Johanna Tunon (see bio below), who will talk about trends and changes in services to graduate students. We’ll then have four breakout sessions - 15 minute moderated chat discussions - where we’ll introduce a topic and then invite YOU to ask questions, talk about what you’re doing, and brainstorm how to better serve our graduate students. Can’t come for the whole thing? Join us for the parts that you can...or just for what interests you!


Johanna Tunon is the retired Director of Distance and Instructional Library Services at Nova Southeastern University in south Florida. She now teaches MLIS classes at San Jose State University and other graduate classes at the University of Maryland University College. Johanna has served as the chair of the Distance Learning Section and the Florida chapter of ACRL and won the Routledge Distance Learning Conference Sponsorship Award in 2014. Most recently, her chapter entitled “Reference and Intermediation Services” was published in the second edition of Information Services Today: An Introduction.
