WJ: Reaching Spanish Speaking Agricultural Communities

Tuesday, November 10, 2009 (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM) Export to vCalendar
Where:   WJ Webex Room (Web Conference/Webinar)

Spanish-speakers working in agriculture communities are looking to their libraries and other community technology centers for public access to computers. But like the recent Latinos and Library Perceptions Report confirms, there’s more to be done to reach out to these communities. Join special guests, Patricia Rempel, PhD, Reference and Collections Librarian at Coutts Education Library, University of Alberta and José Garcia, Teen and Reference Services Librarian, King County Library System and NW REFORMA Past President, for this free webinar as they share insights from research on perceived usages of community public access computers by Spanish-speakers in rural Washington gathered through interviews with information professionals. The presentation will include real life examples of library usage in these communities as well as the direct results of the outreach efforts of the libraries studied.
