Double the Pleasure, Double the Fun: Two Round Tables Unite at OLA
The Reference and Legal Reference Round Tables (RRT/LRRT) are excited to once again join forces at the OLA Conference — and all are invited to play along!
ICYMI, the primary purpose of these RTs is to foster fellowship, cooperation, and a culture of sharing among reference professionals. So please – come share and foster fellowship with us in Bend!
Exhibit Hall Table:
Visit our combined table in the Exhibit Hall during no-conflict breaks. Tell your “reference story” on a Post-it display: what your library does well, go-to reference tools, staff training needs, etc.
We’ll also feature a few LibGuides/subject pathfinders with copies for distribution. Got one you find indispensable? Please let us know!
LRRT and RRT are pleased to co-sponsor “How to Show and Tell a Legal Research Story” (Thursday, 2pm). Attendees will get an overview of Fastcase and Nolo, two legal databases currently available for free statewide thanks to the State Law Library. Come learn what these resources have to offer, how to navigate them, and when to refer patrons to them.
Bonus: Hear how your library staff can receive in-depth, hands-on training of these databases at your institution in Summer/Fall 2016!
Attend our joint biz meeting bright and early on Friday from 7:30-8:30am (Sisters, Room A). It’ll be a casual affair to chat about the state of the RTs and what members envision for the future. Learn how ramp up your involvement and help set goals for the upcoming year.
And, knowing 7:30am could be difficult, we’ll have fruit and pastries to ease the pain! (sorry, though, it’s BYO coffee/tea/beverage of your choice…)
RSVPs via Sched.org would be appreciated but aren’t necessary.
Thanks for your interest and we look forward to seeing you in a few weeks.
