Revved up for Reference: Virtual Reference in New York State


Holiday Inn Ithaca Downtown
225 South Cayuga Street
Ithaca, NY
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.

For more information and registration.
