EBSCO is sponsoring 5 awards for attendance at ALA Midwinter. Applicants submit a brief essay on the topic:
“What do you believe to be the biggest challenge in managing electronic resources in libraries today and what solutions do you envision?”
250 words or less – go!
They are also sponsoring Annual scholarships – more info is available at the link above.
The NEASIST fall program, “The library is dead. Long live the library! The rebirth of libraries in the 21st century,” looks great: speakers from libraries and publishing will be talking about meeting user expectations, success stories from libraries in a time of change, and changes in publishing – and it looks like there might be some crystal-ball gazing, too. Plus they promise “breakfast, lunch, and network access for all!”
While you’re at the site, check out the other events. I called this the “fall program” ’cause it’s the big one, but there are other events throughout the year.
