Conference Session Schedule Change!

forwarded from Michael Colford, Conference Committee:

I just wanted to let you all know about a major schedule change for the Massachusetts Library Association Annual Conference on Wednesday, May 2, 2007. Please adjust your personal schedules accordingly if you will be attending the conference on Wednesday.

Technoschism: Reorganizing and Restructuring Libraries for the Real Future will now take place on Wednesday, May 2, 11:00 a.m., as a second keynote address. Vice President of Innovation for Sirsi/Dynix, Stephen Abram, will discuss our changing demographics and newest innovations in social networking, tagging, portals, and persona development, as well as the three emerging trends in the environment: technology, community focus and teamwork

Meeting the Millennials is a new program meeting in Cheshire/Danforth at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2. Stephen Abram, will interview a group of 10 - 15 teens about their attitudes about life and libraries. Come hear first-hand how the next generation to hit adulthood deals with the world and their quest for information.

The schedule change is very disappointing: I am attending the pre-conference Keeping your library... sustainable in the morning (8:30 to 12:30), which means I won't be able to attend Technoschism, the program I was looking forward to attend in the afternoon...

I'm very sorry about the schedule conflict... but you should still catch Stephen in the afternoon when he will be talking about Millennials, and how our world is changing.
