The Oregon Virtual Reference Summit is Oregon's annual conference dedicated to reference, service, and technology. It is a one-day conference that strives for a fun, friendly, inclusive environment with reference-focused content appropriate for all skill levels, library types, and experiences. It is an excellent opportunity to meet virtual reference staff from around the state face-to-face and exchange ideas. Presenters and attendees do not need to staff Answerland; all are welcome.

A day of presentations and conversation about reference services, featuring:

Marie Radford morning main speaker:

Marie Radford is Director of the Ph.D. Program and a Professor at the Department of Library and Information Science in the School of Communication & Information, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ
