Discussion URGENT: ALA Conference Roommate needed

by Florence Tang on Thu, Jun 24, 2010 at 11:55 am

Know any female who is looking for a roommate and hotel, or roommate only in DC beginning Friday, 6/25, and leaving Tuesday, 6/29?

I'm staying Saturday - Tuesday but my co-worker is staying Friday night only. I have a reservation at the Renaissance Washington, but I could stay elsewhere if it is less expensive and/or closer to the Washington Convention Center. The librarian we were going to room with had to cancel due to a medical emergency.

Please contact me at florencye@gmail.com

Thank you!

10:30 to Noon
Washington Convention Center, Room 144 A-C

Please join us for the Library Instruction Round Table program during the ALA annual Conference in DC.  Using technology in teaching is an ever changing process and keeping aware of new technologies can be daunting. Join us to discover how using free or open source software can enhance instruction. Presenters will briefly introduce various technologies such as Animoto & Prezi, iTalic, Wallwisher, WASSAIL, Google Forms, and Ning and explain how these technologies have enhanced instruction. After the short presentations, attendees will be given the opportunity to meet each of the presenters in smaller breakout sessions. If you want to learn more about how free or open source software is being used in instruction, this session will help you capitalize on technology!

Discussion Final Annual 2010 Schedule (pdf)

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Thu, Jun 10, 2010 at 04:00 pm

The final schedule with rooms and locations is available here on Connect as a PDF, with other versions available on the Annual website. In addition, the event planner is officially open.

The event planner should work much better for you this year, because we took some extra time to fix the data and resolve some searching issues in the planner software. It won't be perfect, but it should be an improvement.

Please let us know if you run into problems accessing any these versions.

Thanks!
Jenny

Libraries have long promoted social causes and supported social movements, like the fight for civil rights and the women's movement. And librarians are working to both preserve this grassroots history and to educate their communities about today's social issues. For this program, activists, historians, librarians and other creative thinkers will discuss their research and involvement in promoting civic engagement and human rights, inviting conversation about how librarians can become engaged in social movements.

Speakers:
Kathleen de la Peña McCook, Distinguished University Professor, School of Library and Information Science, University of South Florida;
Cheryl Knott Malone, Associate Professor, School of Information Resources and Library Science, University of Arizona;
John Feffer, Writing Fellow, Provisions Library;
Moderator, Annie C. Paprocki, Anthropology and Sociology Librarian, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

And breakfast will be provided!
