Greetings to all those in the APLA IL IG,
With our annual conference just one week away, there are
four things I'd like to share with you:
1. Shelley Gullikson
CONGRATULATIONS to Shelley on her new position as the
Information Literacy Coordinator at the University of
Ottawa. She will be starting right away, so cannot
attend the APLA Conference this year. We will certainly
miss her contributions here in the Atlantic Provinces!
2. Information Literacy with Audio, Animation and Avatars
This session is scheduled for Saturday morning, at 8:45AM.
The presenters for this session will be:
- Gwendolyn MacNairn, Dalhousie University;
- Jennifer Richard (replacing Shelley Gullikson)
- Tanja Harrison, Acadia University; and
- Denyse Rodrigues, Mount Saint Vincent University
A special *THANKS* to Jen, for agreeing to share her
experience with podcasting in place of Shelley.
3. Interest Group Dinner
It is a tradition at the annual APLA Conference for the
various Interest Groups to dine together on Friday evening.
This year's IL IG dinner will be held at the Merchantman's
Pub, on Friday evening, May 9th, at 8PM. Some members like
to put their name on this list before they arrive -- if you
would like to do this, send me an email <[log in to unmask]>
Otherwise, look for the sign-up sheet on the conference
4. Information Literacy Interest Group Convener
I have been the Information Literacy (formerly Library Instruction)
Interest Group Convener for the past four years (ever since Dianne
Cmor left Memorial). Although there is no set term for this
responsibility, I must step aside and give another librarian the
opportunity to serve the association in this capacity. If you are
interested in doing this, please let me know.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the APLA Conference in PEI!
