Fall Conference Topics Proposed to NLA

Out of our top six fall conference session topics, we found speakers to present five of them. These are the session proposals we are submitting to NLA:

Creating Video Tutorials Using Screen-recorders, to be presented by Greg Sunderman, the Instructional Designer at Northeast Community College.

Genealogy in the Public Library, to be presented by Marcia Stewart, who recently presented a genealogy workshop at Southeast Community College.

Volunteer Retention, to be presented by Annette Hall, the Talking Book & Braille Service Volunteer Services Coordinator at the Nebraska Library Commission.

One Book For Nebraska Kids or One Book For Nebraska Teens, to be presented by Sally Snyder, the Coordinator of Children and Young Adult Library Services at the Nebraska Library Commission.

Online Reference Question Protocol, to be presented by Nora Hillyer, Reference Librarian at the Criss Library at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

It is possible that NLA may not approve all five proposals, but we are optimistic. I will post details here when available.
