Welcome! This section is open to any member of SAA who has an interest in reference, access and outreach issues. RAO currently has two active subcommittees that focus on topics relevant to our members: Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) and Exhibits and Events (E2). We invite and encourage members to contact the RAO Steering Committee with any ideas to better support the membership.
