ALA Annual is right around the corner. To share some of our experiences the LIS Alumni Association will host its first ALA Round-Up, a virtual meet and greet, on July 9 from 12pm-1pm. We will be joined by Kathy Shields, the Head of Reference and Instruction at High Point University, and Amy Pace, Lead Librarian at High Point University’s University Center. Both ladies will be working for Cognotes, the ALA conference newspaper, and will have many experience to share. We will have time for questions and comments. If you are going to ALA and would like to be on the agenda to talk about the highlights of your ALA 2010 experience, please contact Lynda Kellam by July 1.
Please RSVP for the ALA Round-Up by July 8: http://tinyurl.com/lisaa-rsvp
Technical requirements: We will be using a collaborative software called Elluminate. It requires that you be able to download Java onto your computer, but you do not need any special software. After you RSVP, we will send you a link that you can use to test the software. If you have any questions, please contact Lynda. You do not need a microphone as a chat system is available in the software. You may want to use a headset depending on your desk configuration.
