The ACRL National Conference in Baltimore is less than two months away. That means it’s time to start recruiting volunteers who would like to do some conference blogging for ACRLog. It’s easy. Just go to the sessions you’d go to anyway, write up some notes to let others know what you learned at the session, and submit it to the ACRLog blog team – we’ll post it for you.
For this conference ACRLog is participating in a joint conference blogging initiative with the ACRL Virtual Conference. That means we’ll be sharing our conference blog posts with the Virtual Conference attendees. So anyone who blogs for ACRLog will also have their posts communicated to the Virtual Conference attendees (and we’ll be carrying their blog posts in return). We hope to have good coverage of both the F2F and Virtual Conference.
If you’d like to be an ACRL conference blogger, contact Margot Conahan (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 16, 2007. Margot is coordinating all the conference bloggers. Please indicate if you’d like to address one of the perspectives listed below.
-New librarians/first-time attendees
-New technology in libraries
-Community college libraries
Bloggers will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. And yes, you do have to register and pay the regular conference fee.
