Hack ALA

[Hack ALA] Hack Library School Events!

ALA Annual is just a few days away, and as we’re all packing and prepping for Chicago, it’s time to start thinking about Hack Library School events! We’re pleased to be hosting two of them:

Conversation Starter: Hacking Transferable Skills!
This conversation starter will be held in room S102-d at the McCormick Place Convention Center, on Sunday, June 30th, at 1:30 pm! We’ll be talking about life AFTER hacking library school. Here’s the session description:

LIS education is designed to prepare students for many things beyond “library work”–how do we turn those skills into useful talents as we enter our chosen profession? This session will bring students and professionals together to get us talking about “big questions.”

HackLibrarySchool is all about self-determination, and we “hack” our programs and approaches to make our degrees exactly what we seek. How can similar attitudes be applied to library work?

Is there a “gap” between perceptions of recent graduates and library veterans? How can we bridge it?

Join the HLS bloggers to answer these questions and more!

The HLS meet-up!

Come join us for our second ALA Annual HLS meet-up! We’ve teamed up with LibraryLab for a get-together at The Green Door (http://www.greendoorchicago.com/) from 8pm to 10pm on Sunday. Meet like-minded librarians, and chat about the ways you hack your life. This event is informal and should be a blast! Come make some new friends, have a drink, and chat about the conference, librarianship, and general awesomeness. Hope to see you there!
