STS Pocket Program 2015 ALA Midwinter in Chicago

Are you attending 2015 ALA Midwinter in Chicago?  The attached STS Pocket Program will help you decide when and where to go. 

 

Highlights include:

 

STS Research Agenda Forum

2/1/15 from 3pm-4pm

Sheraton Chicago, Ballroom 8

Help the task force finalize the content for the agenda and make it useful for the membership.

 

Publishing and the Society - Panel Discussion

2/1/15 from 8:30am-10am

McCormick Place West W176a

Panelists from American Mathematical Society, Royal Society of Chemistry, IOP Publishing, and the American Geophysical Union discuss the unique role of the society publisher within the scholarly publishing environment and the future challenges they face.

 

Science Librarian Boot Camp  Boot Camp

1/31/15 from 1pm-2:30pm

Sheraton Chicago Ballroom 8

What are these regional science boot camps? Do they include events like navigating an obstacle course in an unfamiliar library, making s'mores over burning piles of deaccessioned indexes, or building a fort out of old volumes of Chemical Abstracts to repel the campers from the other side of the lake? Hear from boot camp planners like Maxine Schmidt of the University Of Massachusetts Amherst, Margaret Mellinger of Oregon State University, and Tim Klassen of the University of Alberta talk about their experiences attending, planning, and running boot camps. The usual lively discussion will follow, exploring what you might get out of a boot camp, what you did at a boot camp, and what you might like to see at future boot camps.

 

See you in Chicago,

 

Clara Fowler

STS Publicity Officer (2014-2016)
