Guest Speaker: Eugenia Beh, Electronic Resources Librarian, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Description: As academic libraries continue to respond to challenges from internal and external pressures in higher education, how are technical services evolving to meet these challenges and what new opportunities do they offer? This presentation will look at the shifting role and function of technical services in academic libraries; potential new directions for technical services staff to become involved in and new skills that are needed to succeed in these areas.

Speaker Bio: Eugenia Beh is an Electronic Resources Librarian at the MIT Libraries. She lives in Boston now but has Texas roots, having received her MSIS from the University of Texas at Austin (hook ‘em!) and having previously worked at the Texas A&M University Libraries (gig ‘em!) prior to coming to MIT. She is the current Marketing and Social Media Coordinator for NASIG and a past president of the Asian Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA), one of the five ethnic caucuses of the American Library Association (ALA). MIT and Boston are great but she does miss good Tex-Mex and Texas winters.
