Join us for the next Re-Imagined Spaces and Services tour put together by the METRO Reference & Instruction Meet-Up group!
We’ll be learning about the remarkable reference program at NYPL’s flagship Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, as well as the AskNYPL reference service.
More about the afternoon:
The New York Public Library provides reference and instruction services to an astounding array of researchers. Join the reference teams of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building and AskNYPL for a discussion of recent initiatives, traditional services, and the challenges and opportunities inherent in providing public services for such a varied community.
Thursday, February 6th 3:00-5:00 pm
You can enter on 5th Avenue or on 42nd street. The 42nd Street entrance is ADA accessible with a ramp and quick access to elevators. Bags are checked upon entry.
Once you are in the building, please take elevators or stairs to second floor. The Center for Research in the Humanities is located in the center of the floor. There will be a sign for our group at the desk. We’ll start with a discussion of the library’s collaborative approach to reference services, followed by a choice of tours of the research and collection spaces or a more in-depth discussion of AskNYPL, the Library’s renowned virtual reference service.
