(via RUSA STARS Education/Training Committee)

The STARS Education & Training Committee announces a FREE “Everything You Always Wanted to Know about ILL” workshop to be held before ALA Midwinter 2017 in Atlanta. The workshop will take place from 9:00am to 12:30pm on Friday, January 20, 2017 at Woodruff Library, Emory University. There is no charge to attend and refreshments will be served. You do not need to be an ALA member or registered for the ALA Midwinter conference in order to attend this workshop.

This system-neutral workshop will cover best practices in resource sharing, address ways you can best serve your users, and provide an excellent overview of the resources and support available to ILL practitioners. Whether you’re new to resource sharing or have been providing services for years, this workshop will help you to reconsider your approaches, make decisions about user services, define best practices, and introduce you to ways you can best contribute to the resource sharing community while reflecting your own library’s mission.
