    Will the Midwinter ACIG updates/presentations be posted here? I checked the website and wiki but didn't see anything. Thanks, Elaine

    The presentations are available from the ACIG wiki, they were posted before Midwinter. On the ACIG wiki go to Programs, click on ALA 2010 Midwinter-Boston, scroll down to the 1:30 ACIG time slot and you will see the various presentations and updates to click on, which will give you the opportunity to open or save the file.

    The summary of the program and minutes of the business meeting which are posted by LITA will be linked to as soon as they are available on the LITA webpage.
