OBJECTIVES:

SUMMARY: This Dual Assignments Discussion Group meeting focused on outreach. While libraries have been always been involved in a variety of marketing and education activities, there is now a renewed focus on outreach because these efforts promote and ensure our relevance to our communities. The group looked at what are the best ways to communicate the value of our carefully built collections to our users? We also looked at what types of collaborations are involved and how are outreach activities assessed?
