Reference and Adult Services Round Table (RASRT)

The Reference and Adult Services Round Table (RASRT) supports the provision of excellent reference and information services, readers’ advisory, and adult programming in public, academic and private libraries.  We provide support for a broad range of library services through training, conferences and webinars and also host networking opportunities for informational professionals.  In the coming year, RASRT plans to expand its activities to play a more active and positive role in the Utah library community.  This is an exciting time to be a member of RASRT since members are able to play a role in shaping its future.
