The article offers a look at virtual reference services discussed at the Colorado State Library symposium. Virtual reference collaboratives quickly are gaining ground. The Colorado State Library (CSL) recently hosted a Denver symposium devoted to the subject, which revealed that steady growth in usage is the norm, with volume doubled in some states over last year. In 2002, CSL hosted a Collaborative Virtual Reference Symposium in Denver, designed to help state library agencies and other consortia launch their own services. A follow-up symposium drew 120 attendees from 25 states, Australia, Canada, and Kosovo who came to learn and share their experiences at the international, national, state, and consortial levels. A dynamic keynote by Stephen Abram, vice president of innovation at SirsiDynix, set the tone for the meeting by challenging participants with a wide array of new technologies and future trends from beyond the library field.
