General Meeting Pattern

 

Monitor LES-L and the LES website for specific information (including room locations) about the conferences.

Saturday

Executive Committee I, 8:00-9:00

Section officers, committee chairs, the listserve moderator and the newsletter and Web editors convene to report on and discuss Section activities, initiatives and future plans. These meetings are open so others may attend if they'd like.

MLA International Bibliography in Academic Libraries Discussion Group, 9:30-12:30

This is a discussion group of ALA, not LES, but many LES members attend and find the group useful. Meetings include announcements from the Editorial staff of the Bibliography, information from vendors, and discussion among literature and other interested librarians.

Program or Membership Forum, 2:00-4:00

The Program is held at Annual Conference only. The topic and format vary each year. During the Membership Forum, one hour is usually devoted to a presentation and discussion focused on a particular topic. The second hour centers on information sharing and conversation about Section activities.

Sunday

Reference Discussion Group, 9:30-11:00

Specific topics vary, but attendees share information and expertise in providing literary reference service.

Nineteenth Century Materials Discussion Group, 11:30-12:30
