Growing old – it’s not what it used to be. The panel will explore the new frontier of aging with an emphasis on how libraries and librarians can better understand as well as embrace the myriad of opportunities that come along with serving mature adults. From hosting benefits access programs to jump starting business endeavors participants will explore how to surf the “age wave” and all that it offers. Co-sponsored by RUSA and the Retired Members Round Table.
