    Dear ACRL CoPA Leaders,

    Attached is the 2016 ALA Midwinter Meeting schedule with room assignments. ALA Conference Services tried to honor requests for specific locations and co-locations, but these were not always possible due to limited meeting space in Boston.

    Here is the list of convention center/hotel abbreviations:

    BCEC – Boston Convention & Exhibition Center

    HYATT – Hyatt Regency Boston

    INTER – Intercontinental Boston

    OMNI – Omni Parker House

    PARKPLAZA – Boston Park Plaza

    REN – Renaissance Waterfront

    SEAPORT – Seaport Hotel

    WCOPLEY – Westin Copley Place

    WESTIN – Westin Boston Waterfront *

    *Headquarter Hotel

    When announcing your schedule (recommendation is to add as a public event in your ALA Connect calendars), please remind your committee members that they are prohibited from making room set changes in the convention center and other meeting venues. Rooms are set to accommodate all groups, not one group.  If you do have any issue with requested AV or a room set on site, please use the ALA Conference Services phone number I will share right before the conference.

    The ALA Online Scheduler for Midwinter 2016 will go live this month, and will be available from the Midwinter 2016 website,

    If you have any questions about your meeting, please let me know.

    Thank you,

    Elois Sharpe
