Thanks to Angela Courtney of the Literatures in English Section for providing this information. I of course am obliged to encourage all dance librarians to attend the Dance Librarians Discussion Group, which is scheduled at the same time. For the rest of you, though, this looks quite interesting.

Open Access Digital Initiatives In the Humanities: Creation, Dissemination, Preservation
As librarians and humanities faculty become increasingly involved in the creation and development of online resources, humanities librarians are strategically placed to use their knowledge, talents, and capabilities to create, organize, and exploit the resources we have at our disposal.
Panelists will discuss 18thConnectand its function in relation to scholars, librarians, and digital providers, NINES and new forms of publishing, and upgrades for the Victorian Women Writers Project, as well as librarian involvement with digital projects, and online resources that can help abate the lack of time, money, and knowledge.
This panel is sponsored by ACRL-LES.
