The Oregon Virtual Reference Summit (https://www.answerland.org/2015-oregon-virtual-reference-summit) is Oregon's annual conference dedicated to reference services and technology. The program is for all libraries and library staff, focusing on sharing ideas about reference services statewide. Meet library workers and virtual reference staff from around the state and exchange ideas. Presenters and attendees do not need to staff Answerland; all are welcome.
