Forum for Information Professionals

The Library and Information Studies Student Association is once again putting on the Forum for Information Professionals. Here is some preliminary information so you can pencil it into your calendars (i.e., put into your Outlook/iCal).

DATE: Friday, February 11th, 2011
LOCATION: The University of Alberta's School of Library & Information Studies in Rutherford Library North

Our keynote speakers this year are:

Dr. Melissa Gross of Florida State University will be delivering a talk entitled: "In search of information literacy: How will I know when I’ve found it?"


Trish Rosseel of the UBC Digital Tattoo Project will be talking about how you can educate patrons on taking responsibility for protecting their digital identity.

And of course there will be a full slate of student presentations. We are very excited about the program this year, and are certain that all attendees will enjoy the day immensely. Full keynote biographies and abstracts will be available on the website, which is still in development. You can expect more information in December, with registration commencing early in the new year. On behalf of the students at SLIS, we sincerely appreciate your continued support and participation!
