More than 150 librarians, representing 73 institutions across 23 states, gathered on the Northwest Missouri State University campus Nov. 4 as it hosted the 11th annual Brick and Click Libraries Symposium.

The Brick and Click Libraries Symposium is a one-day event featuring concurrent and lightning round sessions that explore cutting-edge technologies, practical solutions and timely topics to support the academic information needs of both on-ground (brick) and online (click) students, library professionals and paraprofessionals.

Several Northwest employees offered presentations during the conference. Electronic resources librarian Kathy Hart, Technical Services Coordinator Sara Duff, Acquisitions Manager Lisa Jennings, Student Assistant Neil Robinson co-presented “Making an Impact: The Who, What, Where, Why, and How of Creating a Genre Based Popular Collection in an Academic Library.” Circulation Supervisor Kathy Howell and Information Librarian Lori Mardis also co-presented “Putting the Customer First: Developing and Implementing a Customer Service Plan.”

Kathy Hart and Carolyn Johnson, information librarian and assistant professor at Northwest, co-coordinate the symposium, which works throughout the year to plan the event. Frank Baudino, head librarian for information services at Northwest, is the managing editor of the proceedings. In addition to a paper edition, the proceedings are published electronically in the ERIC education database.
