Email Roundup for Monday, June 9, 2014

Getting a lot more notices from the various roundtables I subscribe to, including New Member Round Table (which, if you haven't joined, has been priceless in terms of information for newbies like myself).  ALA 2014 is the big topic of conversation here, so I'm going to start summarizing the notices I get regarding the round tables and their offerings for the conference:

Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) posted their schedule of meetings at ALA 2014

New Members Round Table sent out a notice that ANMIG will have a chat forum on navigating ALA 2014 on June 16th from 2-3pm EST.  Please be mindful that you need to be registered for both ALA Connect and the ANMIG (ALCTS New Member Interest Group, in case you were wondering) in order to participate.

OIF blog reports that there will be a Banned Books Week booth at ALA 2014 where you can read from your favorite banned book (BYOB is suggested) on either Saturday or Sunday from 9-5pm, which will be recorded and then put on the official Banned Books Week YouTube Channel and provides a link where you can beat the rush and register for this project early.  I plan on reading from The Catcher in the Rye, one of my favorite coming-of-age books in the whole world.

ASCLA is supporting some Exclusive and Valuable Programs at ALA 2014 which you can view here.
