Reciprocal Reference Contacts -- 2015 Request for Information

ASERL Recip-Reference Friends:


I got an inquiry from a library that has recently joined this program, asking whom they should contact at any of the other participating libraries if they ever needed help using the archived reference titles.  As I was replying about our plan to only provide contacts by their titles/roles (e.g., contact the head of reference), our plan seemed unnecessarily complex to me, and just generally  unfriendly / uncooperative in tone. 


So – Starting today, I would like to poll this group once per year to get the names & contact information for two contact persons who will be responsible for fielding questions from other ASERL librarians needing help with the retained reference titles.  It’s a quick/easy form that I commit to updating each year for the remainder of this pilot program (through December 2020).


TIMELINE:  Please submit your contact information using this link no later than July 15


Please let me know any questions or concerns you may have about this change in approach.  Thanks much.
