Initial Call for Roundtable Topics
As we gear up for SLA in sunny San Diego, we are starting to think about potential roundtable themes. What topics are of interest to you? Considering the range of topics from past meetings, potential themes include the changing nature of libraries; adjusting to diminishing (or loss of) physical collections and space; how to use bibliometrics, or tracking staff publications to demonstrate impact of institutions, instruments, and scientists; or other topics that you are passionate about. Please contact us if you have thoughts or ideas.
