Upcoming Mid-South E-Resources Symposium and Emerging Technologies Summit

Registration is still open for the Mid-South E-Resources Symposium and Emerging Technologies Summit being held at Mississippi State University in Starkville, MS on September 16 and 17, 2010. Both of these daylong conferences present a valuable local professional development opportunity for anyone involved in developing, maintaining, and assessing a library's electronic and technological resources.

The Mid-South E-Resources Symposium's keynote speaker is Ross Housewright, from Ithaka S+R, who will be speaking about Ithaka's Faculty Surveys. Additional topics to be presented at the Symposium include eResource workflows, the evolving role of ebooks, and how to measure and communicate library resources to patrons.

The Emerging Technologies Summit features keynote speaker Jason Griffey who will address the "information tsunami" that libraries now find themselves engulfed in and how we will survive it.  Sessions will cover topics such as privacy, instruction, reference, web design, and mobile applications.  Click here to see a full listing of sessions.

You can register for either conference separately or combine both registrations for a discounted fee.  See http://library.msstate.edu/tickets/ for more information on how to register.  Hurry!  Registration ends September 10th.
