RISS at #ARLIS2014

Hello there, conference goers!

The #arlis2014 Reference and Information Services Section (RISS) will meet Sunday May 4, 2014, from 8:00- 9:00am, in the Conference Theater of the Grand Hyatt. We know that is early, but we will be ready to wow you with a cheery overview of all that outgoing Moderator Emilee Mathews has accomplished this past year. We have a few agenda items on the table already, but we wanted to cast a line out to interested RISS members, past, present and future. What would you like to talk about at RISS?
