RA UNCONFERENCE - 5.16.14 - #RAUNCON's avatar


Good morning! We are back in the Library after recovering from the Unconference, and hard at work compiling all the notes and and lists from Friday. And two people have already beat us to the punch! We’ll keep posting these links as long as folks keep writing them, so please send your notes and reflections to share with the RA world.

First, Kristi Chadwick wrote a great recap of the sessions she attended:

My overall takeaway was that while there does not seem to be any new trend waiting around the corner for reader’s advisory, it is something library staff are finding to really be entrenched in their work, and that it is an important part of customer service, engaging the community, and outreach.

Lauren Gledhill has posted a Google Doc of all the titles discussed in the “Nonfiction That Reads Like Fiction” session, and it’s a doozy! If your collection could use some help in this area, go to. Would also be a great place to start for a genre study.
