Reference service continues to evolve to meet needs of users at the point of need. MOOCs, Mobile Technologies- Their Impact on Reference Service will focus on the role of librarian in massive online open courses, and their use of mobile technologies in the library to reach out to patrons.

We have a day packed with thoughtful presentations which cover the experiences of librarians in academic libraries, public libraries, and special libraries, to construct a clearer picture on where reference service is today and what it may be in the future. Here are a few of the topics we will cover in the conference:

· Connecting Users with Resources: Facilitating Easy Access

· A Librarian Takes A MOOC

· That All May Read in a Digital World

· Community Reference: A New Model for Showing Up, Paying Attention, and Staying in Touch with your Community

· Massively Social & Openly Mobile Reference: Current & Future Tech

It’s difficult to keep up with changes in reference technology, so spend time with us November 7th to bring yourself up to speed. Seating is limited and early bird registration ends October 24, 2013. Both individuals and groups are welcome. Recordings will be available to all registrants. To learn more and to register, visit the conference website at
