Summary Attitudes toward outreach vary. Some librarians focus on marketing and advertising; others on relationship building with their constituents; still others focus on fun events to coax people into their facility. The essays in this casebook describe and address universal problems that all librarians face when attempting to produce successful outreach by providing creative and reproducible solutions -- adapted from introduction.
