The Evolving Face of Reference Services

Date: October 10, 2015
Speakers: Jaye Barlous, RStephanie Midkiff, Victoria Szymczak, Roberta Woods

Tracks: Reference, Research & Client Services

The speakers discuss their experiences in moving from a traditional reference desk staffed by librarians to an evolving model staffed exclusively by second and third-year law students. Panel members demonstrate how this model is a win/win for librarians, law faculty, and students by freeing librarians to engage in more instruction, consultations with students and faculty, and in their own scholarly research; and, in the process, teach law students practical research and interviewing skills needed in their practice of law.
