Attention All Reference or Public Services Librarians: Have you seen (or created) any good web sites lately? The RUSA/MARS Local Systems and Services Committee is seeking nominations to update our selective list of Innovative Web-Based Reference Services. Nominations may be made in the following areas:
  • Expert Systems
  • Locally-Produced Databases-Bibliographic or Full-text
  • Personalized Library Services
  • Reference FAQs
  • Reference Menu Organization
  • General Library Tutorials
  • Subject-Specific Library Tutorials
  • Virtual Reference
To see this site and learn about this list and the selection criteria and, most importantly to NOMINATE new sites, go to the ALA homepage and then to the RUSA page or you can go directly to the RUSA page.

From the RUSA page, select MARS and then Publications (in the red border) and then the Innovative Web-Based Reference Services: A Selected List.

You can nominate as many sites as you want and you can nominate sites from your library or from other libraries. Please help us make the list a useful one for other librarians, by nominating innovative sites. The deadline for nominations is Friday, June 2, 2003.
