Note from the Editor:
Spring has sprung here in Virginia, and I hope that it is making its way towards you wherever you are located. Spring is a great opportunity to reflect on what we are doing and look to the future. With that in mind, I am delighted to bring to readers RUSQ 56(3) which as always offers a range of thoughtful pieces for librarians of all sorts.
This issue’s columns cover a wide range of topics, including using a flipped classroom model for information literacy training, ending fines in an academic library, a new approach to using LibGuides, marketing services through a research party, providing personal service at the reference desk, and a timely Alert Collector column on canning and preserving, just in time for the garden season.
Our feature authors look at integrating LibGuides directly into courses, exploring “neotraditional” research tools, and thinking about outreach to non-traditional students. All of these pieces shed some new light on our work in the reference field, and offer interesting possibilities.
And as always, we have some great reviews of professional and reference materials. Please let me know how RUSQ can help your practice of librarianship. Feel free to contact me with your ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
