Discussion Library DrupalCamp 2010 (Pre ALA Annual)

by Cary Gordon on Sat, Oct 31, 2009 at 12:46 pm

Momentum is building for a Library DrupalCamp to be held in Washington (or close by) immediately preceding ALA Annual. I would like to consolidate discussion of this to the groups.drupal.org library group. There is also a thread about this on the drupal4lib mailing list.

Should this IG have a role? Should there be a LITA/ALA affiliation?

My thought is that this should be a free or very inexpensive event, so affiliation might be impossible.

Thanks!

Discussion Don’t miss the ULS social in Boston

by Kim Leeder Reed on Tue, Dec 8, 2009 at 02:27 pm

Greetings ULS,

I think it’s time we got a little animated, inspired — rowdy, even! That being the case, I’d like to invite you all to join me, fellow ULS members, and friends of ULS for an informal social in Boston. Let’s prove that university librarians can have fun, too!

Discussion Program Proposal for ALA 2011 New Orleans?

by Jennifer Darragh (non-member) on Tue, Oct 20, 2009 at 02:47 pm

Hello All,

Today you likely saw a message come out from Adam Burling about program planning for the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans.  While we can certainly have meetings (and will at midwinter and annual), would anyone be willing to work with me on developing a program proposal regarding data librarianship for 2011?  I believe this could be in the form of a workshop or panel discussion.  Perhaps presentations as well?  Let me know if you're interested.
