Calling All Students

Are you a library school student interested in serving teens? Are you a librarian who works with library school students? If you answered yes to either question then add the YALSA Student Interest Group meeting to your Annual Conference calendar.

The meeting is on Sunday, June 29, from 10:30 AM to Noon at the Hilton Anaheim in the Capistrano Room.

During the meeting you’ll get to meet other students (and those that work with them), find out how YALSA can support you, discover how you can get involved in YALSA as a student, and discuss your ideas on the ways you would like to see YALSA support library school students.

As you get ready for the meeting check-out YALSA’s flyer on what’s available to LIS students. If you have questions before the meeting you can contact me, Linda W. Braun, lbraun@leonline.com.

  1. I’m a bit bummed out that I can’t go to ALA in Anaheim – no money!!! – but I’m definately planning on attending the symposium in Nashville, and hopefully other conferences in the future.

    Thank you, however, for posting the link to the flyer, which then directed me to the Ning site. Even though I’m a rabid blog reader, I missed this site. I’m very excited about my new account, however, it seems like the majority of the site’s activity dates back to the end of last year.

    Any ideas on how to revive its interest – I am always looking for new ways to meet new LIS students and YALSA advocates.

  2. Thanks for your comments Krista. You are right that the Ning site has been quiet since late fall/early winter. We’ve been talking about the best way to use social networking tools with students and at the meeting we will talk about that some. I’ll be sure to post on the blog about the meeting conversation so you know what’s up.
