Event Libraries, Archives and Museums: Converging for Real

by Karen Muller on Thu, May 14, 2009 at 06:59 pm

Our users ask for access to information unhampered by arbitrary boundaries between libraries, archives and museums. Yale, Princeton, the Smithsonian, the University of Edinburgh, and the Victoria and Albert Museum have been working at breaking down the walls between their collections. Each of these institutions strives to present a holistic view of all collections regardless of where they are housed or how they are managed. Come learn about what has worked and what has not.

Discussion Increasing Participation?

by Aaron Dobbs on Wed, Apr 29, 2009 at 01:10 pm

While looking at the election returns statistics this week several folks had the same question I had... "I wonder why the turnout was so much lower this year?"

Along with the election, I wonder what we can do to increase participation (both in Association activities and on ALA Connect).

Any ideas?  (It's the end of the semester here & my brain is mush)

Discussion Bringing new people into the library?

by Jessica Brawner on Tue, May 5, 2009 at 07:31 pm

Hi Everyone,

I am curious about what types of things people have tried to bring in new people to the library. I work with live performance groups that provide family entertainment for libraries, and we like to help librarians advertise the shows in the community. We are fairly successful with this. We send out flyers and press releases etc. But I'm curious about what other methods you guys have found that work well for you.

Regards,

Jessica Brawner
