PAM Bulletin Vol 39, No 2
Plans are well underway for SLA’s 2012 Conference in Chicago. The PAM division is putting together ideas for many events including the roundtable sessions. This Conference’s Physics Roundtable will be held on July 17th from 2:00 until 3:00, and we invite you to join us! Michael Chesnes, an LAC contractor for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and Kathleen Lehman, of the University of Arkansas Physics Library, will be facilitating the discussions. Current plans are to hold the session in the café style similar to SLA 2011’s PAM-wide roundtable, with a bit of a change. Rather than staying with just one topic for the length of the time, participants will be able to switch tables part way through the session and participate in a second discussion. A portion of the session’s time will be set aside for sharing discussion summaries and for having a brief question/answer time.
At this point, we are looking for your assistance with two things. First of all, what are important topics you would like to discuss with your PAM colleagues? We have several ideas such as library instruction, space planning, and institutional repositories, but are looking for a total of 7-8 topics that are of high interest to you. We encourage you to come prepared with questions you would like to ask or experience you would like to share about these topics. Secondly, would you like to serve as a table leader? Not every table will need to have a designated facilitator, but if you feel particularly interested in or knowledgeable about a topic, please share that interest! Designated table leaders will stay with the same topic for both discussions. Please e-mail us if you have topic ideas or wish to volunteer as a discussion leader. We look forward to hearing from you!
