Long a core service of public libraries, the expectation of readers' advisory in college and university libraries is a growing trend. Come hear academic librarians describing how they have been challenged to incorporate readers' advisory techniques into their programs, and to hear from public librarians who have successfully partnered with their local institutions of higher education for the mutual benefit of public library cardholders and students.
