Introduction

The Bibliographic Instruction Special Interest Group (SIG) is composed of individuals interested in various aspects of library instruction. Meetings throughout the year cover a wide range of instruction topics and offer important opportunities for networking and information sharing. The SIG also provides professional development opportunities through group discussion, and presentations by group members, vendors and others. Topics targeted for future meetings include instruction for targeted groups, distance learning and bibliographic instruction, developing assessment tools, and planning for the future needs of bibliographic instruction.

 

Upcoming SIG Meeting

Trick or Tool?

Tuesday October 27, 2015

10:00 am to Noon

http://metro.org/events/686/

A classic take on the old Halloween query. Do you have a great library instruction-related tip, trick, or tool to share? Maybe a neat activity plan, an icebreaker, a go-to resource, or a web application that really comes in handy. Need to fill out your own toolbox?

Join the METRO Bibliographic Instruction SIG for a series of 10-minute, 5-slide plus quick Q&A presentations. If you’ve got something cool to share, contact lmiles.librarian@gmail.com by Friday 10/16.
