ALA Annual Conference 2020


The presenters will share their results from a national, mixed-methods survey of over 239 academic libraries from the United States. The survey focused on reference desk models and librarian perceptions of the value of a physical reference desk. Attendees will have the opportunity to be part of the discussion and collaborate in a Google Doc brainstorming ideas for the future including changing reference desk models, meeting the needs of our users, and reenvisioning what reference means.
