LACUNY update
« on: January 14, 2013, 11:02:47 AM »
From: Kimmy Szeto, Liaison to LACUNY
To: SUNYLA Council
Date: January 14, 2013

LACUNY's annual conference, LACUNY Institute, "Libraries, Information, and the Right to the City," will take place on April 5, 2013 at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. The goal of the 2013 institute is to create a dialogue about how library and information professionals can (or should) move beyond being guarantors of access and become engaged in communities’ production of knowledge. The keynote speakers are Christine Pawley, former director of the School of Library and Information Studies, University of Wisconsin – Madison and historian of print culture in America, and Jessa Lingel, doctoral student at Rutgers and author of “Occupy Wall Street and the myth of the technological death of the library.” Registration information will be forthcoming.

As always, LACUNY welcomes SUNY colleagues' participation. If you are interested in attending, presenting, or making an announcement at any LACUNY group or list, free feel to let me know, or contact the person in charge directly.
