AALL Annual Meeting Program Planning

Page history last edited by Debbie Ginsberg 13 years, 9 months ago

Theme:  No theme this year, programs will be based on tracks.

Program Submission Deadline:  Sept. 15, 2010


AALL Programs--Program blocks include 90-minute programs, 75-minute programs, 60-minute programs, 45-minute programs, and 30-minute programs. There are 66 programs total, but only 50 are "free slots" which are open for general program submissions.  Most of the rest are reserved fro individual SIS top choices - but note that CS-SIS will also get one of those slots.


AALL Workshops--normally one-half day or a full day - workshops are self sustaining so fees must be charged for all expenses.  AALL will offer a maximum of 4 workshops for next year's meeting.


CS-SIS Programs and Roundtables - We can also sponsor programs and roundtables but we must pay all expenses.  These are most often programs that AMPC did not select.

A workshop on d-space or some other open source repository alternative.  Logistics aside, I think a lot of people are building repositories or thinking about it and it might be a really useful hands on full day workshop for CS type librarians.  If it doesn't work out next year for Philly, it should definitely be on our plate for the year after in Boston.
