Traditional reference service is dead--- or dying. This blog will focus on new approaches toward providing library assistance to patrons... or whatever else I feel like rambling on about.

Dancing in Savannah

Heading to Savannah for the Off-Campus Library Services Conference. Something odd in the program: dancing!

We’ll see how that works out. I wonder if there was actually a demand for this in past assessments of the conference. Anyway here are some items that look promising.
  • Collaboration with ILL
  • Designing Library Services for the PDA
  • Experiments with online tools to deliver off-campus library instruction
  • The development of RoboDemo tutorials in an OCLS blackboard space
  • When faculty behave like students: teaching faculty about online library resources
  • Blackboard on a shoestring: tying courses to sources

Oh and 8:30 AM start times are ridiculous, especially since many attendees are not in the Eastern Time Zone.
