CRIV events in San Antonio


I hope you will join us for 2 CRIV events in San Antonio!

The CRIV Vendor Roundtable will be held on Monday, July 14 from 11:45am to 12:45pm in HBGCC-Room 007B. This year's topic for discussion is "The Role of Customer Feedback in Vendor Decisions". If you have any questions about the roundtable, please contact me.

Also, the CRIV sponsored program "The Bookless Law Library: Potential Reality or Flight of Fancy?" (H3) will be on Tuesday, July 15 from 3:45pm to 4:45pm in HBGCC-Room 214AB.

Description:
The nation's first "bookless" public library recently opened in San Antonio. Hear from two librarians at BiblioTech, who will discuss their experiences in creating this library. Learn about their patrons, what their staff of 12 does, how their digital collection is used, and what occupies their physical space. Also, find out how this unique library is faring, including the community's response. Then, a manager from a large law firm will explain how his firm shrunk its print collection by more than 60 percent, but has maintained the same staffing levels as eight years ago. He'll share attorney and staff responses to this change, as well as compare electronic and print collection costs. Is a bookless library in your future? You might be surprised!
