This year, I’ll be representing Whole Person Librarianship as a panelist at this ALA-ACRL session:

Saturday, June 25 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Orange County Convention Center, Room W108
Add it to your conference scheduler

As public libraries earn attention and kudos for connecting their users to needed social services, the question arises as to the role of the academic library in connecting our users with resources on services for mental and physical health, food security, housing, child care and other societal needs. Join a researcher into how libraries provide these connections along with a panel of student service providers for a lively discussion of the academic library’s potential role.
