RASS: Reference and Adult Services Section

RASS members and potential members, please fill out our RASS Survey & Application for our Master Conversation

Based on 2 Surveys run by the RASS Board in 2016, we are moving ahead with 2 initiatives for 2018, and we need your help. 

  • We plan to hold a Master Conversation about the current state of Reference & Adult Services in New York State. If you would like to participate, please fill out the survey & application above.
  • We intend to create a mini-grant program, to be run through RASS with RASS monies. Over the next year we need a committee to investigate how best to make that happen. If you are interested and able to work on that, please fill out our survey above.

Statement of purpose

The purpose of the Reference and Adult Services Section is to represent and promote the interests of librarians and information providers from all types of libraries who are concerned with the development of general and specialized reference, information and resource sharing services, and with the improvement of library services, materials, and programs for adults. The Section provides opportunities for networking, continued professional development, and the addressing of issues of statewide concern to its members
