While nothing is final, ILA/ACRL is working on sessions to be held at the ILA Conference on October 13th and 14th in Dubuque! We hope to have sessions focusing on 21st century archives and open educational resources. We are also hoping to bring in a keynote speaker to take about generational differences and sponsor a concurrent session. I've also seen the very preliminary schedule of sessions and am very pleased to say that there should be a lot for academic librarians! More to come as things get finalized!
