ALI E-Resource Rendezvous
The ALI Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) is pleased to announce that the next ALI conference, the E-Resource Rendezvous, will be held on Monday, October 20, 2014 at the IUPUI University Library in Indianapolis, Indiana.
This event is sponsored by the ALI Board of Directors and uses facilities generously provided by the IUPUI University Library. Registration is open to all personnel who are currently employed by ALI member libraries. All costs associated with registration, parking, lunch, and other refreshments are paid for by ALI, so attendance is entirely free to all participants who register by Friday, October 10, 2014. Our focus this year will be on discovery tools in Indiana libraries.
The conference will consist of group sessions in which ALI librarians discuss their ideas, concerns, and suggest priorities for new ALI acquisitions, a presentation by Lyrasis to the ALI membership, a panel discussion on discovery tools used in Indiana libraries, and short lightning round presentations where ALI members present their electronic resource initiatives.
