Due to feedback from several people who would have been traveling on the day the Forum was originally scheduled, I have rescheduled the Education Research Libraries Forum.  I hope this will make it easier for people to attend!

The meeting of the Education Research Libraries Forum has traditionally been held annually on Friday afternoon at the summer ALA conference.  It does not include a program, but is a discussion that focuses on topics of interest to librarians working with education collections.
This year's Forum will be a virtual meeting shortly after ALA in San Francisco.  If you work in an education research library, we hope that you will join us.  While I will have a list of possible discussion topics to get us started, any participant is free bring up a topic he or she wishes to discuss.  The discussions are always varied, and inevitably interesting, so I hope you will make time to join us.

Please review the following tips designed to provide you with a successful meeting experience:

1.       Adobe Connect has recently updated their software. When you log-in, you may notice a screen asking you to install the add-in. If you click “yes,” the update will install in about 20-30 seconds. You may need to complete the audio setup wizard after installing the add-in.
2.       Use Firefox, if possible -- Internet Explorer and Chrome seem to have some issues.
3.       Make certain you have an updated version of Flash.
4.       Only use PDF or PPT files.
5.       You will need a headset for VoIP. If you are using a machine with a built-in microphone, you will need to disable the built-in microphone and enable the microphone on your headset (a USB headset is best).
6.       Once you enter Adobe Connect (you will sign in as a guest -- so no log-in is needed), you will need to click on the speaker and microphone icons to activate -- both need to be GREEN.
7.       Please allow a few minutes to get in and test your audio, etc. before the start time.
8.       To test audio, click on ‘Meeting’ in upper left corner. Choose the audio set-up wizard. Click through every step, making sure the dropdown is set to your USB headset, and click through to the very last screen. IMPORTANT: You must click all the way through the audio wizard in order to save your selections.
