Online Doc 2016 Conference Preconferences/Insititutes, approved and recommended by Conference Program Committee, AC2015, #B1515b

by Susan Hornung-IL (staff) on Sat, Jun 13, 2015 at 11:44 am

Since there were not as many sessions as previous years the committee did end up approving all of the proposals, although some are accepted with suggestions in the notes section.

Since there were not as many sessions as previous years the committee did end up approving all of the proposals, although some are accepted with suggestions in the notes section.

The preconferences and MW institutes were not identified this year due to a problem in the collection site, so we could not tell which were which for Midwinter or Annual Conference. We like all 4 proposals and made recommendations on which sessions we would prefer at which conference. In particular, #1 (Consulting Toolkit) & #4 (Freelance Success) need to be at different conferences since they share a presenter. We would prefer Freelance Success at Annual since we feel that it has a broader appeal. The other two sessions, #2 (Sustainable Staff Development) and #3 (Censorship) were also approved. We suggest that Staff Development be at Midwinter and Censorship be at Annual since Censorship has a broader appeal but we did not have strong feelings if it ends up being different.

Event Libraries Behind Bars: Education and Outreach to Prisoners

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Mon, Jun 8, 2015 at 11:31 am

The United States incarcerates more citizens than any other country, which presents a pressing issue for civil society. This program brings together a multidisciplinary panel of scholars, moderated by a prison librarian, to raise awareness of the importance of prisoner education in reducing recidivism and improving rehabilitation outcomes. It highlights the role academic libraries play in research on the incarcerated and incarceration institutions, as well as in outreach to incarcerated populations. This is a joint program by ANSS, LES, and LPSS.
