Discussion Groups and Forums

Discussion Groups & Forums

On Twitter: #rusadiscuss
 

Discussion groups and forums are an excellent opportunity to participate in a lively exchange focusing on current and relevant topics in a variety of areas of librarianship. Many groups offer speakers followed by extensive Q&A, and others are more informal gatherings where participants can engage with peers on a particular topic. The sessions listed here are identified by their sponsoring special interest section. Exact dates and times will be posted throughout the spring at www.ala.org/rusa .
