The Reference and Adult Services Division:

The Reference and Adult Services Division [RASD] of NCLA provides a forum for librarians to exchange ideas and advance their careers by sponsoring workshops and seminars throughout the year. You can become more involved by joining the RASD Committee! We meet once a month to exchange ideas, discuss professional problems and solutions, and plan programs and workshops. It’s also great opportunity to network with colleagues from other libraries. If you would like to find out more, please contact any current board member.
