Book Talking 3.0: Inspiring and Engaging Readers Online

Readers’ advisory is a key component to library services, but with users moving to more virtual domains, we must focus on virtual book talking, creating an online place for readers’ inspiration. Using blogs and online book clubs, learn to inspire rather than advise so patrons of all ages continue making libraries a part of their reading lives.
