LES and Related Meeting Schedule for Annual 2012 (Anaheim)

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Are you planning to come to Anaheim for ALA this June? Whether you are a member of LES or simply interested in what we’re doing, you are invited to come to LES meetings, discussion groups, and conference program. Below is a schedule along with a brief explanation of each event’s purpose. We hope to see you in June!

Friday, June 22

9:00 a.m.–4:00.pm. – Anaheim Convention Center-208B

Pre-Conference Workshop: Digital Humanities in Theory and Practice: Tools and Methods for Librarians

This requires separate registration and fees. It’s selling out very quickly!

Learn how humanities librarians can participate in, create, and lead digital humanities initiatives. In addition to introducing theories and practices that characterize the digital humanities, explore several examples of how librarians currently lead library digitization initiatives, collaborate on faculty projects, and participate in national grant-funded efforts. Investigate project management complexities, digital humanities’ impact on research collections, humanities librarians’ work with faculty to manage their digital humanities research, and digital humanities’ role in scholarly communications.

Saturday, June 23

8:00-10:00 a.m. – Disneyland Hotel-North Exhibit Hall Room IJ

Executive Meeting I

Meeting of the officers and committee chairs of the Literatures in English Section of ACRL. Open, but it’s a business meeting and probably not of interest to the general public.

10:30-12:00 p.m. – Disneyland Hotel-North Exhibit Hall Room DE

MLA IB in Academic Libraries Discussion Group

Not an LES meeting, but of interest to many members. Get updates on the state of the MLA International Bibliography from vendors and MLA representatives.

1:30-3:30 p.m. – Hilton Anaheim-Palos Verdes Room

Fair Use, Intellectual Property, and New Media

As libraries continue to acquire digital content (books, films, websites, and other media), they face an increasing demand both to adhere to relevant intellectual property laws, and to open up materials for teaching and research purposes. This session will feature a panel of professors, lawyers, and librarians to discuss how librarians can assert fair use rights and understand the complex range of issues concerning intellectual property rights over new media materials.

4:00-5:30 p.m. – Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel-Pacific Ballroom B

New Members Discussion Group & General Membership Forum

Discussions pertaining to the role of the literature librarian, and an opportunity to connect new literature librarians with each other and seniors in the field.
