An Egregious Oversight
Posted by: Keir Graff

When I listed all the great programs my colleagues will be organizing and participating in, I left off the Reference Books Bulletin program, “We’ve Got Issues: Market Trends in Publishing and Their Effects on Reference Collections.” This is a particularly egregious oversight: I started my career at Booklist working for Mary Ellen Quinn in Reference Books Bulletin. I know from experience that reference folks get ribbed a bit for the books being “dull,” “heavy,” and “potentially fatal,” but truth be told, the reference programs can be standing-room-only. And I always found our reviewers to be delightful people.

Scheduled speakers include Kara J. Malenfant, Scholarly Communications & Government Relations Specialist at the Association of College & Research Libraries, Mary H. Munroe of Northern Illinois University, and Stewart Bodner of the New York Public Library. “We’ve Got Issues: Market Trends in Publishing and Their Effects on Reference Collections,” will be held at the Morial Convention Center, room 291, on Monday, June 26, from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Get there early!
