MLA Conference Presentation Opportunity
A former SI student contacted SI to make students aware of an opportunity to present at the upcoming Michigan Library Association Conference in Lansing.
The Associate director of the Clinton-Macomb Public Library , Juliane Morian, recently emailed asking if of the names of any ambitious, project-oriented SI students who would be interested in presenting at the Tomorrow’s Professionals session of this year’s MLA conference.
Here’s a description of the session of the conference schedule: “Attend this program to learn about library student projects from tomorrow’s professionals and tap into their talents today. MLA is delighted to welcome students from local library science programs to offer presentations on a noteworthy project or internship completed while pursuing their graduate degree. In this annual program, student and recent grads have showcased digitization projects, grand-writing initiatives, website redesigns, and service projects. Harness the energy of these students in your library today.”
The session will be in Lansing on Wednesday, 11/4 at 3:45. Presentations will be approximately 15-20 minutes, with about five minutes afterward for questions. There is space available for two SI presentations, either by individuals or groups.
Interested students should get in touch with Juliane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
