RA in a Day

RA in a Day is a one-day conference that brings some of the best readers’ advisory advocates together to share their knowledge and expertise on meeting the needs of readers. During the day, participants will learn about the latest RA trends and look at how to best serve those who visit our libraries every day, either in-person or virtually.

RA in a Day 2024 – Shaken, Not Stirred: Mixing Up Your Readers’ Advisory Practice (Virtual Event)

Join us for an engaging RA in a Day event designed to broaden your perspectives on current RA practices. Mix up your readers’ advisory approach by learning new skills, refreshing current practices and contributing to the RA discussion.

Event Highlights:

Interactive sessions: Join us for two interactive sessions where your voice is part of the discussion. Learn from others and get tips and tricks to help your RA practice.
