All are welcome and are encouraged to attend.” (from the ALA scheduler:


Chasing Reference ( “Chasing Reference is an Emerging Leaders project sponsored by the American Library Association’s Reference and User Services Association (RUSA). The blog, like RUSA and its membership, is broad in scope, diverse, and appeals to members of RUSA, librarians interested in becoming members of RUSA, and people interested in librarianship. Chasing Reference covers diverse topics from librarians in a variety of settings. RUSA has a very broad mandate, and while Chasing Reference reflects that, it also showcases specific topics and day-to-day concerns of librarians. It’s reference in the world: exciting, unexpected, fun, and informative.”
