New RIPS Social Media Series: Questions with Puron

The RIPS PR & Recruitment Committee has launched a new series on social media called “Questions with Puron” to highlight the diverse views and professional strategies of the constituents of Reference Instruction and Patron Services Special Interest Section (RIPS-SIS).

Each month, our penguin mascot will pose a question to one of our members. The librarians who make up RIPS come from various institution types (academic, public, corporate, government) and hail from all over the country, so we anticipate a broad scope of insights and perspectives. The PR & Recruitment Committee will be reaching out to select members for participation in this series.

Questions will range from “what brought you to law libraries?” to “what is your favorite app?” With diversity taking a front seat in the national conversation, we are reminded that our profession represents a varied group with common goals serving a wide array of patrons. Despite geographic, cultural, and institutional distinctions, the views and ideas of our colleagues can be appreciated across the profession.

To join the conversation check us out on Twitter RIPS-SIS (@RIPS_SIS) and Facebook. We hope that others will join in the conversation using the comments on Facebook and Twitter to augment the conversation with their own experiences.
