ALLUNY Spring Institute 2011

Although is seems like Spring is never going to really arrive the Spring Institute is just around the corner.  Once again we will be meeting at the Syracuse University College of Law on Friday, April 29. The title of this year's Institute is: 

Take the eek! out of e-books and e-content's effect on your library

Registration and continental breakfast will begin at 9:30 AM and last until 10:00 AM. We will have three programs at 10:10 AM, 11:15 AM, and 1:45 PM. We will also have a Wrap-up session at 2:45 PM followed by a Board meeting. All are welcome to attend the Board meeting.

The main topic of the Spring Institute will concern E-books and E-content and the impact on libraries.

The first session will feature Julia Schult, a librarian from Baldwinsville Public Library. She will discuss the development of E-books in the last decade and their recent acceptance.

The second session will feature Scott Warren, the Head of Collections at the Syracuse University Library. He will address the options that an academic library faces when purchasing E-books.

The third session will feature Dan Rosati of the Hein Company. He will present to us the vendor perspective of Digital content and E-books.

The price of the Spring Institute will remain the same as last year.

The registration form is available at http://www.aallnet.org/chapter/alluny/si2011/regform.pdf. Please fill it out and send it to Jean-Paul Vivian with your payment by:  Wednesday April 20, 2011
