The paradigm of librarians sitting at a Reference Desk expecting students to come to them is shifting. The literature reveals many ways librarians develop “new” ways of connecting with students. The presenter will focus on a “Librarians in Da Rez Halls” program where weekly “Help” desks are set up outside Residence Hall Dining Rooms. Among points covered: 1) convincing busy librarians that a weekly commitment can strengthen the librarian/student bond, 2) working with Residence Hall staff to plan, promote, & implement a program, and 3) what’s good, what’s challenging, & what the librarians can do better.
