2011 ALA Midwinter: CITS Interest Group Meeting, San Diego

The ALCTS Creative Ideas in Technical Services Interest Group will meet at the ALA 2011 Mid-Winter in San Diego, CA on Sunday, January 9, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. in SDCC-Room 30.  Attendees are invited to participate by joining one of the breakout sessions listed below.  At the end of the discussion period, each group will share a brief summary of their conversation for the benefit of all participants.

The discussion topics are:

1.  Next-Gen OPACs:  Are We There Yet?
2.  LC Subject Headings: Best Practices
3.  Encroachment of Management Responsibilities on Tech Services Job Description
4.  Opening up Library Usage Data
5.  RDA and Small Libraries
6.  Workflow Efficiency: Good Practices and Great Outcomes

**Volunteers Needed!** We are seeking volunteers to facilitate and record the discussions at each breakout session.  Responsibilities include:

**Facilitators: Guide the discussion at a table, making sure everyone has an opportunity to participate and that the discussion progresses through the allotted time.  The chair and vice-chair will provide the facilitators with a list of questions that may be used to guide the conversation.

**Recorders: Take notes during the discussion and send a written report to the chair as soon as possible after the meeting.  These reports form the basis for the reports to ALCTS and published in Technical Services Quarterly.

If you are willing to serve as a facilitator or recorder for any of these topics, please send you name and contact information to Tony Fang (fangx046@umn.edu) by Noon on Thursday, January 6.  Please include an indication of any topics you are willing to facilitate and/or record.

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!

I wish I could get some of my kids to enroll! I'll give it a shot next time.

Working to get kids back into the library one at a time!
