2010 SSP Librarian Focus Group

February 2, 2010, The American Geophysical Union (AGU), Washington, DC

Ten years in, what does a 21st Century library look like? How are librarians meeting the changing needs of patrons? What are their predictions for the next big thing? Join us as we pepper six seasoned librarians with questions about what keeps them up at night and what they need now.

In a proven formula, our panel of librarians will take questions from moderators and participants on a range of themes during a full day of discussions. The panelists have been chosen for their wide ranging knowledge, and there will informal as well as formal opportunities for discussion.
