Librarians don’t need to stay in the library

I came across a great example of roving support from across the pond at the Kutztown University. As with many things our American cousins are quite the innovators.

Roving or roaming support in HE libraries is pretty common-place but I love this idea of booking a librarian for a particular class or space. Where I work now we are developing roving support through our other learning spaces, outside the central library to support students wherever they are (within reason!).

There’s no reason why, with the abundance of mobile technology and location software that librarians need to be refined to the traditional reference desk.
