SUNYLA, the State University of New York Librarians Association, will be holding their annual conference this year at SUNY Brockport from June 16-18. The theme this year is “An Information Odyssey”:
During this conference, we will explore how changes in the way information is generated, collected and disseminated have changed radically over the last 25 years. This has had a profound effect on libraries and library staff, and many have risen to the challenge, putting themselves in the forefront with innovative ways to incorporate and embrace these changes. Functions that were formerly outside the librarian’s scope of experience are now standard, from social networking to on-line learning.
This is another great networking and professional development opportunity right here in Western New York. Even better, SUNYLA is offering the Daniel F. Kissane Memorial Scholarship to fund the attendance of one currently enrolled MLS student. The scholarship covers all fees, including registration, travel (up $350), lodging, and meals. The application involves writing a short easy of <1000 words.
