On behalf of the LES Conference Program Planning committee, I would like to invite you to an exciting forum at ALA Annual:

This program will convene a panel of librarians and other collectors to discuss efforts to collect, catalog and preserve print and digital ephemera associated with high-impact events (e.g. Charlie Hebdo, Euromaidan, Sandy Hook School shooting), and to contemplate ways in which research libraries are or should be evolving policies and practices to support contemporary evolutions in research.
