University Libraries Presents Fall 2013 Library Live: An Information and Resource ConferencePosted Oct. 28, 2013
Kent State University Libraries will sponsor Library Live, its annual one-day conference, on Nov. 12 from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at the first floor lobby of the library. The event is free and open to the public.
The conference is an opportunity for participants to learn about resources and services offered by the university. It is a chance for hands-on learning through workshops that support teaching and research.
Sessions of interest to the general community also will be offered, including information about the services of the public library; “Talk Back to the Dean,” a question-and-answer session with the University Libraries dean; and information about Kent State’s Special Collections and Archives' digital collections.
“This year, our sessions include such topics as our new institutional repository, what’s available in our digital archives and even a special session hosted by the Kent Free Public Library, highlighting some products they offer that we don’t have at the University Library,” says Adam Steele, circulation manager at University Libraries.
Participants can choose what part of the conference to attend. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Advanced registration is strongly recommended and required for lunch.
