Housekeeping (06/24/2015)

A couple of random things...

Thing #1:
Rachel is organizing a learning community. The Librarianship and Critical Theory Learning Community will organize its learning around various themes, the first one of which is Gender and Sexuality in Information Studies.

If critical theory and learning in community are your jam, indicate your interest via this online form.

I won't write more about this in case Rachel decides to blog about it.

Thing #2:
I'm headed to ALA Annual in San Francisco tomorrow. I am always a bundle of nerves the day before I travel and today is no exception.

If you're San Francisco-bound, I'd love to say hello. The best way to find me is to send me a friendly 'Where are you?' tweet. I'm @erinaleach.

A couple of programs I'm looking forward to:
Telling your story: why technical services matters:

Cataloging and Classification Interest Group (featuring Emily Drabinski and Amber Billey talking about gender and RDA):

And a couple of programs I'm involved in:
ACRL Undergraduate Library Section's Mid-Level Manager Discussion Group (I'm co-presenting with Michelle Millet on strategies to engage disengaged and difficult staff):

Creative Ideas in Technical Services Interest Group (I'm the IG Chair):

If you're ALA Annual-bound, what are you excited about? What programs have I missed?

Stay positive,
