Reference, Access, and Outreach Section logo

Welcome! This section is open to any member of SAA who has an interest in reference, access and outreach issues. RAO has three specialized subcommittees that focus on topics relevant to our members: Teaching with Primary Sources committee, Exhibits and Events (E2) committee, and Assessment of Measures and Metrics for Public Services committee. We invite and encourage members to contact the RAO Steering Committee if there's anything we can do to better support the membership.
