ETS: Emerging Technologies in Reference Section
The ETS: Emerging Technologies in Reference Section of RUSA (formerly known as MARS) represents the interests of those concerned with attaining the highest possible quality in planning, developing, managing, teaching, or conducting all forms of computer-based reference information services in libraries. The possibilities for professional and personal growth are enormous!
New Name! MARS is now ETS, Emerging Technologies Section!Our section has a new name - recently confirmed by vote in the recent ALA election. Over the course of the next year we will be transitioning from MARS Emerging Technologies in Reference Section to simply Emerging Technologies Section, so begin to watch for us with our new acronym of ETS.
