This is accomplished through:

  • Member presentations on service innovations, challenges, and best practices
  • Sharing of relevant literature on reference services
  • Creation and distribution of relevant documents and policy statements
  • Guest presentations
  • Discussion of management issues related to reference services

Membership is open to all CUNY library faculty involved in reference services.
