Dance Librarians Discussion Group Virtual Meeting on January 12

Please join the Dance Librarians Discussion Group for our bonus virtual meeting on January 12, 2012 at 2:00 PM EST.  Our special guest will be author, Stephen Manes, whose recent book, Where Snowflakes Dance and Swear: Inside the Land of Ballet, provides backstage access to a major American ballet company, the Pacific Northwest Ballet.  Manes followed the company closely for over one year, documenting the 2007-2008 season and its aftermath in extraordinary detail.
To participate in the discussion, please sign up as a member of the Dance Librarians Discussion Group community page.

Hi! I'm new to the group and would like to attend the Jan. 12th virtual meeting. How do I do that? Thanks!

I THINK the answer is to sign up to the group and then turn up on its page at the appointed hour on Jan 12. But just in case I'm wrong, I'm forwarding your note to Helice Koffler, who will be running the show.

See you (virtually) there!

Thanks! I look forward to hearing about your book!

Welcome, Kathleen!  When you're logged in to your ALA Connect account you should see a link to "Chats" in the column on the right hand side of the DLDG page.  If you click on that link, it takes you to the chat page for the group.  I have set up a test chat (called, imaginatively, "test"), if you want to try it out.  If you post a message and can see your own message, you're good to go.
