Are Users Finding Our Online Reference Resources?

Webinar held Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Sponsored by the RUSA CODES Reference Publishing Advisory Committee and the RSS Education and Professional Development for Reference Committee

 

Libraries spend a great deal of money on quality online reference resources, in the hopes that they will be useful to our communities. But are they being used? How do users discover reference resources in the online environment: teaching, research guides, stand-alone vendor resources? How do we enable users to cross multiple interfaces to reach reference sources? Join our discussions with librarians and vendors on these issues.

At the last ALA Midwinter meeting, the Committee held a discussion to address these issues.  Due to high interest in that discussion, this Webinar was presented with some of the same and some new presenters. 

The Power Points from that Webinar are attached, and a full recording is available on the on the RUSA Website.

This Webinar was funded by the Reference & User Services Association, a division of the American Library Association.
