RA for All Roadshow @ BEA

This morning I will be presenting on the following panel:


Libraries Transform™: ALA@BEA, Embrace the Innovative Future of Readers’ Advisory
05/12/2016, 9:00 AM - 9:50 AM
Room W183
The question heard daily – “ Do you have anything else like this?” In public libraries, reference librarians are often called on to make recommendations to readers, sometimes in genres that they don’t personally read. Learning how to frame a discussion and articulate the appeal of a book, author, or genre marks the essence of a successful readers’ advisor. This session will track the latest trends in Readers’ Advisory. Focus will be on methods for delivering personalized, immediate and mobile-friendly recommendations, including input from Booklist!

Use this link to get all of the details including who else is on the panel with me.
After the presentation, I will gather everyones slides here in this post, but for now, here is the access to my slides. Please click on the images in the slide show. Most have links embedded in them. 

ADDED 5/19/16 Here is access to Polli Kenn’s slides.  She went before me.
I look forward to meeting some of you tomorrow. If it is anything like meeting many of you yesterday at LJ DOD and/or the Library Reads Dinner, it’s going to be a great day.
