Business Reference 101

Are you a public, academic or special librarian providing general reference services, or are you new to business librarianship?
Are you feeling overwhelmed and intimidated with the responsibilities of business reference collection development and electronic resources, and how to make use of these tools to answer reference questions?

RUSA–the Reference and User Services Association–is offering a valuable workshop to help you confidently tackle these areas of your important work.

“Business Reference 101: Core Competencies for Business Librarianship” will be held Friday, June 28, 8:30am-4:00pm as part of the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.


You can add this to your conference registration, or if you just want to come to the workshop and not the entire conference, you can register using event type “Ticketed Events and Preconferences Only”

Early Bird Registration Rates (good thru April 12): $179, RUSA member. $199, ALA member. $219, non-member. $149, ALA Retired and Student members.
