This fall semester join the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community for a series of conversations with Blended Librarians. In these sessions we will explore the role of the Blended Librarian by discussing with our guests how they developed their skills, how they obtained their positions, what their work is like, what their challenges are and what they enjoy about being a Blended Librarian. Our first Conversation took place on Thursday, October 13, 2016 with guest Joelle Pitts from Kansas State University Libraries.
