ALA Meeting Agenda

June 23, 2007

We have a rough agenda — talking points, really — for the LITA Distance Learning Interest Group (DLIG) meeting at ALA Annual (Saturday, June 23rd, 10:30 a.m. – 12 noon / Renaissance Washington – Room 2)

  1. Introduction to DLIG & update
    • New cochair
    • Blog
    • Technical Services Quarterly (Barry Baker’s column)
  2. How to make DLIG more beneficial & ideas on how to coordinate with other DL groups
  3. July deadline for 2008 LITA Forum – ideas, volunteers
  4. Distance Learning open discussion:
    • 2.0 technologies
    • Outreach — what works, what doesn’t
    • Are we making users go through the library for help, or are we giving them tools to work on their own and/or meet them where they are?
    • True tales: successes/problems

We hope you are able to join us, but if you couldn’t make it, feel free to add your own thoughts here! We’ll be posting minutes following the meeting, as well.


We’d love to hear from you. Do you have ideas on how the Distance Learning Interest Group can work better for you? Have you had a recent distance learning success, or even a failure or challenge you are still trying to address? Or are you part of a distance learning group we can coordinate with?

Let us know. We’d be happy to add your thoughts to this community blog.
