If you were looking for the ALCTS Member Reception in the ALA Midwinter Meeting schedule, be sure to look for it under its new name: ALCTSFest, A Mid-Conference Gathering!
How My Library Was Energized by ALCTS Publications!
Has an article that appeared in Library Resources & Technical Services or in an ALCTS publication, such as The Institutional Repository: Benefits and Challenges, helped to implement a new service, practice, or procedure in your library? Has a Sudden Selector’s Guide, such as Sudden Selector’s Guide to Biology Resources, given you the needed background to serve as a collection manager or selector? Has an ALCTS publication provided you with content for teaching a class?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, I would like to hear from you. The ALCTS Publications Committee is organizing the ALCTS Forum to be held at the 2014 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia on Monday, January 27 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Speakers are needed to make presentations from five to fifteen minutes in length highlighting how an ALCTS publication has impacted their work or library.
Speakers do not need to be ALCTS members.
Please send expressions of interest to me, Dina Giambi firstname.lastname@example.org, Chair of the ALCTS Publications Committee, by Saturday, November 30. Please include the title and author of the article or book and how it impacted you or your library.
