Roving Reference
 Goal: continue to develop and expand our ability to reach patrons
who would not normally approach the desk.
 Proactive customer service focused approach to delivering
information
 Delivering a targeted service at the point of need
 Increased visibility of library staff and resources available with a
focus on providing for the individual needs of the user.
 Enhance/personalize quality of patron-librarian interaction
 Patrons’ needs can be addressed by directly approaching them on
their terms
 Increases quality of reference that reaches users
Creating a
Roving Reference

users are requesting throughout all areas of the
library

videos, and eBooks) to any type of mobile device
•Train staff on how to engage users in
conversation and meet their specific information
needs

Setting Up a Virtual Reference Model
Choosing the Service That Fits Your Library
• Elements of Service
• User Practice
• Software Functions
Setting Up a Virtual Reference Model
Free alternatives
• Digsby
• This slide, or the next, needs
information on the concept of
driving people to our services or
meeting people across the
services they already use
Virtual Reference &
Social Networks
It is more than just booklists……
Create a social networking plan for how often to post, what
content to post, etc. and implement schedule using
Hootsuite.
Post links to free credible resources and explain why you
recommend them or how they can be useful to your
community.
Ask questions, survey community wants/needs/expectations
of reference services and/or resources
Create a conversation with library users-for example “What
are you reading this weekend?” or “do you have any
recommendations of local tutors?”
Virtual Instruction
Opportunities In House
Create a self serve digital learning station for users to view instruction
guides created by community members. i.e. Youtube video on “how
to download an app to your device” created in a program using our
green screen.
Record your own 3 minute video clips on “how to…” (download an
eBook to a Kindle Fire, etc.) and upload to a YouTube account. A
great way to personalize the instruction and promote it on social
networks as “how to” of the day.
Offer live Skype instruction right from the Reference desk during
designated hours
