ALCTS' RPLTS Interest Group seeks panelists for Annual

Please excuse the crazy cross-posting; we’re just very enthusiastic!


Will you be in Anaheim for ALA Annual? Has your TS department undergone some major changes in the past five years and are you now a proud survivor? If you answered “Yes” to all these questions, we want you! 

ALCTS’ Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services Interest Group is seeking panelists for our Annual meeting. We would like to discuss the restructuring of technical services departments in all types of libraries, focusing mainly on what the landscape looks like now that things have settled. We want to know: Is there still a place for professionals and if not, where did they go;  what the pros and cons have been after the dust settled and work resumed; what tips or advice do you have after having experienced the shift? We want to know how the change came about, how it went down vs. how it was planned, and what does (perhaps formerly) TS look like as a result?

When and Where:

Sat, June 23, 2012

10:30 am - 12:00 pm

HYATT-Pacific Room 

Please e-mail us (STokoro@uncc.edu or EOlivier@dclibraries.org)  if you are interested in being a panelist and helping to lead a discussion on the topic afterward.

 And, really, even if you don’t want to be a panelist, put this meeting on your calendar. You’ll either leave armed with ideas and information or we’ll all be crying and in need of strong drinks and that’s how the best networking happens. It’s win/win either way.
