Save the Date: ALSC Community Forum, August 2013
The ALSC Board of Directors and ALSC President Starr LaTronica will be hosting two ALSC Community Forum live chats with a special emphasis on new media in libraries: what it is, how we use it and how to develop best practices in this rapidly evolving information environment. The ALSC Children & Technology Committee will be co-hosting this online discussion. The community forum will build on the 2013 ALA Annual Conference Conversation Starter: “Building A to Zoo for Apps: Time-tested librarian skills meet cutting edge technology for kids.” In addition to the 45 minutes of discussion, these forums will include quick announcements from the ALSC Board of Directors at the 2013 ALA Annual Conference and a time for questions at the end.
Your two opportunities to join in the discussion are:
- Tuesday, August 20 at 11am CT
- Wednesday, August 21 at 2pm CT
