LIRT Conference Program -- 2001

Partnerships For Instruction

Sunday, June 17, 2001
9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Moscone Convention Center -- Rooms 303/305


The concept of partnerships across libraries will be the primary focus of this program. Library Instruction may be viewed as a continuous outreach to a variety of populations and communities, regardless of size. As a result, public and academic libraries now find themselves linking with other library types to facilitate information-seeking skills. A panel of Librarians with experience in these partnerships will present the challenges and opportunities inherent in reaching out to others. A poster session featuring examples of library instruction partnerships follows the panel discussion.

Speakers:

  • Patrick Jones, Author of Connecting Young Adults and Libraries
  • Lisa Rosenblum, Manager of Adult Service and Training at San Jose Public Library

A summary of the program, prepared by Anne Houston, is now available.
