The 2012 ALAO Conference planning is going very well thanks to a very active committee. The conference will be held on Friday, October 26, 2012 at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio. Our theme is Impact Factor, the Value of Academic Libraries. Lisa Hinchliffe, former ACRL President and coordinator for information literacy services at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will deliver the keynote address. Lisa is co-chair of ACRL’s Value of Academic Libraries Committee. We hope to offer two preconferences on Thursday, October 25th as well. Details will be forthcoming this summer along with conference registration.
The 2012 ALAO Board Retreat will be held on July 16-17th at the Deer Creek State Park.
