AASL 12th National Conference
Prof. DiBianco (who teaches my Integrating Technology into the School Media Curriculum course) suggested that the class browse the online handouts from the American Association of School Librarians' latest conference, and I'm very glad I did. Among the many workshops and sessions being offered there were several that looked to be relevant to young adult librarianship in general, and the public library setting in particular. Terrific Titles for Teens, Success in Teaching Teens to Search the Internet, Do Your Students only Google, Yahoo, and Ask Jeeves, and Scratching Each Others' Library Backs are among the titles that contained really helpful information I can use immediately. The AASL 12th National Conference handout page will be available to the public for about 8 weeks. After the 8 weeks have elapsed, handouts and other conference material will be moved to the AASL Conference Archive and will only be accessible to AASL members, so do yourself a favor and visit the AASL conference website soon.
