We have some exciting news! We are proud to announce that the Chancellor will be joining us at the conference via video on Thursday June 17th from 9:15 – 10am. Details are still being worked out as to what will be covered. Stay tuned to this site for more infomration.
While the conference registration will not be ready to go for awhile, many folks have asked about conference costs so they can apply for funding. At this point, it looks as though we will be able to keep costs at or only slightly above last year’s figures: $45.00 for members to register, Thursday dinner $35.00 or less, on-campus housing less than $50.00 per night, box lunch Friday about $8.00. If there are any prices that go up, the increase should be less thatn 5%. Some costs may actually be lower. I’ll update everyone as soon as I have some more information.
Our keynote speaker for SUNYLA this year is Suzanne Bell, from the University of Rochester. Reference Librarian, researcher, speaker and author, she participated with Nancy Fried Foster in the U of R’s Undergraduate Research Project. She looks forward to sharing with us her interpretation of the conference theme.
