EBSS Activities at 2014 ALA Annual meeting

Hi EBSSers, and apologies in advance for duplication and a long email!

Amazingly, we're only a little over a month away. I wanted to send out some information about EBSS activities at the conference, so folks can start putting together their schedules.


First, as usual, the majority of our committees meet at our consolidated meeting on Saturday morning. Here is a basic outline for that meeting:

  • All-Committees Meeting.
    Sat June 28, 08:30 to 11:30am: LVH-Pavilion 11

This meeting is broken down as follows, unless your committee arranges differently:

  • 8:30-9:00: New leaders Orientation (for folks who will be new committee chairs for 2014-2015)
  • 9:00-9:15: Break and breakfast - EBSS will have light breakfast snacks (but bring your own coffee!)
  • 9:15-10:45: Welcome and then committee meetings
  • 10:45-11:15: Reporting out and wrap up

A few committees meet outside of the consolidated meeting. (If you don't see your Committee listed below, that means you are at the consolidated meeting above):
