The Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASCLA) will host ASCLA 101, a networking and orientation event for interested, new and current members from 10:30 a.m. -11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 28, at the Las Vegas Hotel in conjunction with the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas.
ASCLA, a division of ALA, represents librarians serving special populations; independent librarians and consultants; state library agencies; and library networks, cooperatives and consortia. Conference attendees involved or interested in these areas of librarianship are encouraged to attend ASCLA 101 where they can learn more about the division activities and special interest sections representing each of these topics. ASCLA member leaders will be on hand to answer questions about the division and help attendees best identify how they can be involved with ASCLA projects and activities.
“ASCLA 101 is an incredibly valuable event that supports member involvement and engagement,” said ASCLA President Sara Laughlin, “We’re excited for our first ASCLA 101 program. It’s a great opportunity to meet colleagues, find a home within ASCLA’s special interest groups and connect with other members. Any new, longtime or potential members of ASCLA should make ASCLA 101 the first official event of their conference experience.”
The event agenda includes a brief presentation about ASCLA, a raffle for fun prizes and significant time for networking. RSVPs are not required, however interested attendees are encouraged to add ASCLA101 to their schedule.
