The weather’s a bit iffy in Chicago today, and I’m posting this from the corridor outside my hotel room because I can’t get a decent wireless connection in the room, but nonetheless it’s great to be back in Chicago and I’m looking forward to a terrific conference. If you’re here too, or soon will be, please make time for tommorrow’s Arts events:
All Committees Meeting: Saturday, July 11, 8:00-10:00 am, Sheraton Chicago BR 1
If you’re not a member of a Section committee but you’d like to find out how to get involved, come to the All Committees meeting and jump right in. Newcomers are always welcome!
Arts Discussion Forum: Saturday, July 11, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm, Intercontinental Hotel, Toledo Room
In lieu of our usual presentations by Section members, we are holding a special open discussion: Arts: The Next 50 Years. Where are we headed as a section? As arts librarians? Where should we focus our energies in uncertain times? Any issues from the current (the future of BHA?) to the more remote (virtual conferences?) are fair game, but this discussion is for you. Please come and tell us what’s on your mind.
If you’re not attending the conference but you’d like to keep up with Section activities, follow this blog or use Twitter tag #acrlarts.
