Join us at the Nova Scotia Provincial Library for the first in the
College of DuPage's Soaring to Excellence Series of satellite
teleconferences for 2004/2005, "The Role of Teaching in Modern
Libraries".  Library staff are increasingly called upon not only to
find information for their patrons, but to also teach their patrons
skills related to finding, evaluating, and using information. This
teleconference explores the expanded roles of librarians in today's
modern libraries.  Listen to the panel discuss changes in the library
profession and find out what "blended librarianship" is.
