Oregon Reference Summit 2018 – Lightning Talk 5

Questions, Questions, Questions?  Your library’s Reference Staff can help you find answers, presented by Margaret Harmon-Myers, Chair of OLA Support Staff Division and Sara Webster @ Beaverton City Library

This lightning talk will demonstrate some of the resources, from local community to international websites and many things in between that can be tapped for information to answer patrons’ questions.  The Reference Staff shows the patron where and how to look, and takes him/her along for the ride in pursuit of the answers.
