Forwarded from Jenny Levine:

Want to present at the second annual ALA TechSource Gaming, Learning, and Libraries Symposium taking place on November 2-4 in the Chicago area? Find out more about submitting a proposal at http://gaming.techsource.ala.org/index.php/Call_for_Presenters. The deadline is June 15, 2008.

Help us make GLLS2008 even better than last year’s event! Questions? Email Jenny Levine at jlevine@ala.org.

Also, for those of you interested in attending, there’s some preliminary information about registration, the location, and keynote speakers at http://gaming.techsource.ala.org/. Registration will open on Monday, May 12, and will be limited to 350 people, so sign up early.

edit: Lots of YALSA members are doing wonderful things with gaming at their libraries; if there is interest in putting together a panel, the Teen Gaming Interest group can coordinate something. Contact Beth Gallaway (informationgoddess29@gmail.com) and/or Kelly Czarnecki (kczarnecki@plcmc.org).

Alternatively: What kinds of programs would be of use to you? What do you need to know about gaming? Leave a comment!
