We can’t wait to catch up – please stop by for a visit.
At this year’s SLA Conference we’re offering three ways for you to catch up with Lucidea’s Inmagic and SydneyPLUS staff:
One - Please join us for the annual Lucidea SLA Cocktail Party! It’s happening at the Pan Pacific Hotel (next door to the Convention Centre) on Monday June 9 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. We’ll be in Oceanview Suite 2 (Restaurant and Gallery Level). Just take the lobby elevator, press “R” and follow the signs. Let us know if you’re coming! Sign up here and download the invitation.
Two - Please join us for our SLA Hot Topic Session “Adapt, Act and Thrive: Ensuring a Sustainable Library.” This session will examine serious challenges that threaten the sustainability of special libraries, and focus on strategies for proactively overcoming them. A panel of your peers will discuss how they ensure and leverage info-ubiquity; embed themselves within their organizations; engage end users; manage challenging vendor relationships; control costs, and demonstrate value. The session will focus on how the panelists are making their departments and functions more relevant – now, and into the future. This session will take place at the Vancouver Convention Centre West, Room 114 and 115, on Monday June 9, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
The panelists are: Judith Bloch, Corporate Librarian/Information Resources Manager, Shannon & Wilson, Inc.; Joan Cunningham, Regional Librarian, SGH; Jennifer Hermsen, Global Library Services Manager, Kemin Industries, Inc.; Karen McQuillen, Manager, Library and Information Services, Educational Testing Service (ETS); and Susannah Tredwell, Manager of Library Services, Davis LLP. The panel moderator is author and library authority, Joe Matthews!
Three! Of course, your third option is to visit us at Lucidea booths 816 and 817. We’ll be there on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
