The Western New York Library Resources Council presents a conference in Ithaca for New York State Librarians...
Revved up for Reference: Virtual Reference in New York State
Holiday Inn Ithaca Downtown
225 South Cayuga Street
September 24th & 25th, 2009
More and more libraries are providing reference services virtually. This conference is a way for librarians to see the current options for providing virtual reference, such as chat, text messaging, and more. Learn what librarians in New York state and the surrounding areas are doing with VR, and get a chance to network, on September 25th.
In addition, librarians who participate in Ask Us 24/7, New York State’s cooperative chat reference service, are invited to a half-day of events on September 24th. This is your chance to discuss how the service has been working for your library and ask questions.
The conference will be held in Ithaca, New York, known for its waterfalls, gorges, and breathtaking views, especially during autumn. The hotel is within walking distance of the Ithaca Commons, where you’ll find a diverse collection of shops and restaurants. Ithaca is also home to a number of excellent wineries.
