Support Staff & Circulation Conference is May 23

Working Together - Blending, Merging, Transforming - is the theme for the May 23 one-day conference sponsored by the Support Staff and Circulation Services Section of WLA in Appleton at the DJ Bordini Business & Industry Center.

For just $45 for members ($60 for non-members), you'll get a full day of programming on current topics in library management - and some just for fun:
  • The Tattooed Librarian (Keynote)
    Amelia Osterud is the Director of Information Services and Circulation Librarian at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin, as well as being the author of "The Tattooed Lady: A History." Join Osterud for a discussion about her research, the research process, and the long road to publishing a book that seeks to clear up the mystery and misinformation surrounding tattooed ladies in the historical and scholarly record.
  • All Together Now: Library Advocacy, Front Line Service, and the Wisconsin Library Community
    Ron McCabe, WLA President, will describe how we can work together to demonstrate the vital importance of the services that libraries provide.
