    Here is the abstract for the session:  "How do you engage reluctant or hard to reach users?"

    Many librarians struggle to reach their clients, who may only touch base at a moment of need. How can librarians find ways to interact with their users and build a more engaged relationship?  In this session, learn about outreach opportunities, engaging liaison faculty with non-traditional techniques, collaborating with researchers directly in research labs and clinical settings, and building deeper engagement within the library itself.   Speakers will share stories of their actual engagement successes followed by a full question and answer period.

    For further information email both : aabwml@rit.edu; bryants@msu.edu.
