Learning Activities

  • Course Code: S16-6-RW


    This is a recorded webinar provided by SOLS, free of charge and on demand. It was recorded May 2016. 

    Readers' Advisory, particularly the ability to have informal readers' advisory chats one-on-one with patrons, is an essential service in public libraries. While seeking out a reading suggestion is less daunting with the aid of the OPAC and the internet, some of the best RA relationship building actually occurs away from the desk. This webinar will highlight tips and tricks for "on the spot" engagement with readers both in the stacks and in the outside community. Learn how to prepare for impromptu readers' advisory conversations, spark engagement and get to the root of a patron's reading desires without running to hide behind your computer screen.
