YALSA is trying something new at the ALA Annual Convention in New Orleans this year…a Table Talk Presentation.’ Instead of one topic dominating an entire presentation session, the Teen Services Mashup Table Talks will have multiple sessions running simultaneously, allowing attendees to get a broad sampling of ideas in a short amount of time.’ Think science fair for librarians, but more fun. While we have some great presenters already lined up, we’d like a few more to provide a richer variety of topics.
Maybe you’ve thought about presenting at ALA but never thought you’d have an idea big enough to fill an entire session.’ Or maybe you’ve never thought about presenting but’ you have a great program or concept you’d like to share. If you fit either of these situations, this is a great opportunity for you to step up and share some of those great ideas with the YA librarian community.’ More details and applications are available on the YALSA website and are due on’ Jan. 31, 2011. We look forward to seeing your ideas.
