Libraries and Online Learning: an ALCTS Midwinter Symposium

Friday, January 25, 2013
8:00 am to 4:30 pm, US/Pacific

Libraries and learners have long been engaged in a successful partnership. Never has this partnership been more important or wide-ranging than in today's online environment. “Libraries and Online Learning: A Powerful Partnership,” a Midwinter Symposium from the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS), offers a unique opportunity to engage in an important discussion of the role of learning in our libraries.

From local public libraries to national and transnational digital public libraries, from primary schools to research universities, libraries increasingly provide for learners' virtual educational experiences. In this symposium attendees will learn to foster the strategic relationships possible between libraries and online learners.

Confirmed speakers are:
Mike Eisenberg, dean emeritus and professor, University of Washington, Information School
Karl Nelson, director of the Digital Learning Department, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, State of Washington
Felix Reyes, Public Instruction Specialist, King County Library System
Jonathan Grudin, principal researcher, Natural Interaction Group, Microsoft Research
Additional speakers will be announced in the near future.

Join your colleagues from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25, 2012 at Midwinter in Seattle.

Registration is through the ALA Midwinter registration form and is $219 for ALCTS members, $269 for ALA members, and just $99 for students and retired members.
