2012 SSP 34th Annual Meeting “Social, Mobile, Agile, Global: Are You Ready?”
Concurrent 5E: Chat with Librarians – The Sequel
Jean Shipman, University of Utah
Last year, one of the best received SSP program sessions was the Chat with Librarians Roundtables. Due to its success, this session is being repeated this year. You can ask additional questions as to how libraries really work? What keeps librarians awake at night? How are library budgets established and how do they differ between institutions? Want to get some feedback on a new product, new journal package, need advice on how to get an institution’s attention? Here’s your chance to talk with eight different librarians about any topic of your choice. Eight librarians will be available to ask questions and will rotate between tables. Timed table sessions will permit you to speak with all eight. The librarians represent mainly academic health sciences libraries. Ask those tough question; consider this your session and enjoy!
