Theme: “Striking a Balance: Positive Practices in Libraries”
Date: May 14-15, 2014
Striking a Balance: Positive Practices in Libraries, the theme for the online conference, will offer hints on how to find balance in solving problems, making decisions, and overall management of our lives and our library careers. Spend time learning how others in the library profession strike a balance and how this balance contributes to overall success in their lives and in their libraries.
Registration is now open and admission is free for member libraries (Yes, Baylor is a member of Amigos!). We will not be setting up library-wide, come-and-go group reservations for this year’s event as we have in the past, so anyone who is interested in attending the online sessions should submit an individual (or small group) registration packet. The registration form and conference schedule are available at http://www.amigos.org/member_conference_2014. Baylor’s OCLC symbol, which is one of the first things asked in the form, is IYU. Simply leave blank the “Name of voting representative” section when prompted since it is not required for attending breakout sessions.
