New Librarian Roles – Building Connections not Collections

Speaker: Micah Vandegrift, 2013 Library Journal "Mover and Shaker"
Tuesday, December 10, 2013
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST


The past few years have produced more than a few articles, reports and initiatives focused on the new face of librarianship. The field, which is constantly evolving in response to our users and patron needs, is approaching a time where e-resources are a significant percentage of the collection. Placing emphasis on the relational aspect of our work is increasing in importance in response to that shift. This webinar will discuss some possible opportunities and challenges to approach these topics, especially in the context of academic librarianship.
