  • Description….Collaborating: Students and Libraries: Kurt discusses how librarians at NR were inspired by Apple Stores’ display and customer service model and collaborated to create the @One eReader Bar where users can explore various handheld devices and learn what is possible, including making use of library e-resources via eReaders. The librarians acquired devices; researched, tested, and tracked how each worked and shared their findings with each other; designed an eReader Bar LibGuide; trained additional staff; and created informational materials.
