Reference and instruction are often seen as separate entities, despite both being fundamental aspects of public services. When they are viewed as two sides of the same coin, however, this facilitates the development of more formal and informal teaching and learning opportunities between students and librarians. This coordination also creates opportunities to connect with faculty and students in new and exciting ways, including a potential increase in face-to-face reference interactions. After a brief description of the presenters’ successful experiences with this approach, attendees will be invited to brainstorm and/or share ideas about what they are doing at their own institutions.
