Join your colleagues for “And Now for Something Completely Different: Our Future From Outside the Box,” an exciting and timely symposium from the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) on Friday, Jan. 15, just before the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Boston. Registration is now open, so sign up while space is available.
Cutting-edge thinkers will prepare short opinion pieces on future trends, issues and developments that are likely to have an impact on research, instruction and scholarly communication. These essays will serve as the foundation for panel discussions among many of these thinkers, selected respondents and attendees on emerging roles for libraries and librarians, particularly collections and technical services librarians. The essays will be posted to the ALCTS web site at www.ala.org/alcts. This symposium will build upon the themes developed in the Thursday ALCTS Symposium, “Living Digital.”
Papers are now being added to the web site: http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alcts/confevents/upcoming/ala/future.cfm
Check back often for updates. We hope we’ll see you in Boston!
