RUSA RSS Library Service to Aging Population (Reference Services Section) Committee
Library Services to an Aging Population Committee held two meetings at ALA Annual in Las Vegas and worked through the current draft of the “Guidelines for Library Services with Midlife and Older Adults: Best Practices” with the goal of finishing the draft by the end of 2014. The committee also decided to discontinue the recommended websites that was created years ago, and to fold particularly excellent websites into the OLOS Keys to Engaging Older Adults @ Your Library.
Committee members organized and presented the program Creative Aging @ Your Library, highlighting successful arts programs at public libraries. Approximately 150 people attended, and several signed up to learn more about the committee and its projects.
The committee will meet virtually in October (date to be determined).
