ALA Virtual Library Conference


This year’s ALA Virtual Library conference is July 18th and 19th (Wednesday and Thursday). HR has agreed to cover the cost of the conference. In order to register, I need some idea of how many people are interested in attending and where they are interested in viewing the conference. Currently, the conference programs are  not available so the poll is to gauge your interest, you are not committing to attending.

Please take the poll by May 25th so we can get your input.

About the conference:

Framing the ALA Virtual Conference on July 18 and 19, 2012, “Mapping Transformation” hosts keynote speakers and interactive 45-minute Web sessions providing insights from experts and offering opportunities for conversation around key issues related to transformation in libraries.

Speakers include: George Needham and Joan Frye Williams on Libraries in a Post-Print World; Lee Rainie (Director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project), on the rise of e-books and next steps in the Project’s research on the evolving role of libraries; Brian Mathews, Jamie LaRue, Emily Dowdall (Senior Associate- Pew Charitable Trusts’ Philadelphia Research Initiative), Nate Hill, and others on transformative thinking and activity in libraries, and more.

And back by popular demand–30-minute author lunches hosted by Booklist editors Brad Hooper (talking with Katherine Boo) and Donna Seaman.

The archive of ALA Virtual Conference will be available free to registrants for up to six months, and also free after the event to all full registrants of ALA Annual Conference.
