About Reference Services
We provide the following core services to all libraries across the state of Minnesota:
Instruction on and support for Electronic Library for Minnesota (ELM) resources and the ELM Portal
- Reference Notes newsletter
We provide a number of opportunities throughout the year for library staff to strengthen their
knowledge and skills in using the Electronic Library for Minnesota databases. We're also available
to schedule workshops on-site.
If it's online instruction you're interested in, check out our current webinar offerings
and archived webinars. If you'd like us to visit your library and deliver a presentation
or hands-on workshop, please fill out our instruction request form.
Follow our newsletter, Reference Notes. You can also check out the
libraries we've visited and on-site
instruction locations. To see more of Reference Outreach & Instruction on the road,
