Looking forward to seeing you at the LES Reference Discussion Group meeting on Sunday, June 28, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Hilton Union Square, Imperial B. We'll be discussing these three topics:

  • How does your institution provide information literacy instruction for low-level English classes? Do you do all of it, or do you negotiate with teaching librarians, reference desk staffers, or others? Has the Framework impacted these discussions?
  • Which print reference tools do you still use regularly, if you still have a print reference collection?
  • As liaison services evolve, how do we form effective partnerships with others, from IT specialists to graduate/postdoc/other fellows? And if we want to build these partnerships, what partnerships do we need to end or de-emphasize?
