Speaker: Beate Hoerning, Grad Student, Humboldt University of Berlin
Speaker: Cheryl Eberly, Principal Librarian YA & Volunteer Services, Santa Ana (Calif.) Public Library
Speaker: Dr. Anthony Bernier, Associate Professor, San Jose State University

Given the library profession’s long history with volunteerism and its increasing reliance on volunteers at all levels of service this panel begins to address the core question “What if we took volunteers seriously?” Speakers will discuss their hands-on experiences with staff and volunteers, as well as the strategic management of volunteer participation. Dr. Bernier will present findings from the first empirical research (conducted by a LIS scholar) on young adult volunteerism and a doctoral student from Germany will present research done on volunteerism in the U.S. from an international perspective.
