Librarians Without Walls: Working with the Community / Bibliotecas sin Paredes

Speaker: Cristina Dominguez Ramirez, Collection Librarian for Social & Behavioral Sciences/ Assistant Professor, Virginia Commonwealth University

Cost: $50 (REFORMA Member); $75 (Non-Member)

This seminar will discuss how to make the most of your role as academic or public librarian to promote educational programs, outreach, community engagement, and information sharing with the local Latino community and the larger multi-ethnic community. As REFORMA librarians, we hold many keys to information management as well as a responsibility to help promote Latino education and education of the larger community. This can be accomplished through our work in networking with community organizations, other library and information professionals, academic departments and units, service workers, non-profit agencies, and student groups. The use of Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, and other social networking sites and media help to bridge physical barriers in order to promote programs, activities, information, and events to the community.
