The Librarians’ Inquiry Forum (LINQ) is an ongoing professional development project from the LIS Program at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, working in cooperation with the Hawai’i State Public Library System (HSPLS). LINQ offers Space & Place for public librarians to collaboratively juxtapose their own reading practices with patrons’ reading interests as a means of professional learning. This session will present anonymized data from 15 participating HSPLS librarians that introduces the better-best practices they’ve collectively identified and employed as a means of providing culturally and socially competent information services for Hawaiʻi’s public library users.
