Hi there!

Yes - you see my name in the header, but this message is from Elizabeth Ridgway, '98 Fellow.  She's here with us for a year's sabbatical.  She knows this area and has been tasked with making this convention experience rock!  Heed her words:

Several of us from the Library will be at the AASL conference in Indianapolis, Nov. 15-17.  We'd love to see our fellows while we're there.

First, food!  Is anyone interested in getting together for dinner on Friday night?

Second, exhibit presentations.  We'll have a booth set up in the Exhibit hall throughout the conference.  We'd like to have fellows stop by and help show off American Memory.  What you show is up to you.  Perhaps you could talk about your lesson; do a presentation on American Memory and what's been helpful for you; spotlight a particular collection and show search strategies; and/or share your students' work using American Memory.  Anything that you'd like to share would be great.  Plan on about a half hour.

The booth will be open on Thursday from 5:30-8:00, Friday 9:00-5:00, and Saturday 10:00-4:00.

Let me know if when you'd be interested in sharing and what you'd like to share.  Also, let me know if you'd like to join us for dinner on Friday.

Looking forward to seeing you Indy!
