RISS #arlis2014 Conference News: SEE YOU IN DC!

Hello there, conference goers!

 The #arlis2014 Reference and Information Services Section (RISS) will meet Sunday May 4, 2014, from 8:00- 9:00am, in the Conference Theater of the Grand Hyatt.  We know that is early, but we will be ready to wow you with a cheery overview of all that outgoing Moderator Emilee Mathews has accomplished this past year.  We have a few agenda items on the table already, but we wanted to cast a line out to interested RISS members, past, present and future.  What would you like to talk about at RISS?

 In the meantime, add the RISS section meeting to your conference schedule and make time for the following RISS workshop and RISS session.
