Something Old, Something Blue, Something Innovative, Something New: the Herget Welcome Center and Changes for Reference and Reader Services

The renovation of the Newberry’s lobby has made way for the new Herget Welcome Center. The addition of the Welcome Center not only means modifications for the first floor, but also the reading rooms and reader services. Join Reference Services Librarian, Jo Ellen Dickie, Special Collections Services Librarian, Lisa Schoblasky, and Manager of Volunteers, Rebeca Haynes to hear about the innovations of the Welcome Center, the new framework for reference services, and the role volunteers will play in this new model.
