ALA Annual Discussion Forum, Sunday June 26th, 3-4pm, Hilton

Sunday, June 26, 2016
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

The Committee on Multilingual Library Services (RUSA-RSS) will be holding a discussion forum at ALA Annual:

Date: Sunday, June 26th

Time: 3-4pm

Place: Hyatt Regency Orlando, Bayhill 31 & 32

The committee is in the beginning stages of revising ALA’s Guidelines for the Development and Promotion of Multilingual Collections and Services, found here: http://www.ala.org/rusa/resources/guidelines/guidemultilingual. We’re interested in hearing from you on how you use these guidelines in your daily practice. What has proven beneficial? What could be improved? Additionally, we want to know: If you don't use them, why not? What do you use instead?

We’d also like this to be a space for you to exchange ideas, project information, and resources you use when working with multilingual populations and collections. We are considering creating an accompanying toolkit to the guidelines and are hoping to use this time to begin outlining this resource.

If you have any questions, please contact Erin Hvizdak (co-chair of the committee) at erin.hvizdak@wsu.edu.
