Announcing ULS’s Program for ALA Annual 2009

The 2009 ULS Program Committee is very excited about their proposed Program at the Annual Conference in Chicago titled “Millennials in Graduate School: How Do We Support Them?”

Millennials, those born between 1982 and 1994, are finishing college and entering graduate school.  Surveys suggest that these students use libraries heavily and are less than satisfied with the experience.  What do these digital multi-taskers want and expect, and how can university libraries support their needs?   This program will bring together a panel of speakers to discuss trends in graduate education, the expectations of this cohort and the successful approaches that will engage them.

Your feedback is welcome! If you have any comments about the theme or ideas for speakers to include, please contact Cory or comment below.
