In cooperation with the RSS Cooperative Reference Services Committee, member Arlene Weismantel and her colleague Christine Tobias, Michigan State University, have created a video providing an overview of cooperative reference. In this seven-minute video, Arlene and Christine explore the benefits of participating in a cooperative, as well as some of the challenges. Our intended audiences are new librarians interested in learning about cooperative reference, library school students, and libraries considering joining a reference cooperative.
The video will be linked from numerous RUSA RSS pages, but you can watch it now: http://youtu.be/rrdbOe2du10
