Fall Conference Sessions Finalized!

NLA and NEMA received many more session proposals than the number of slots available, so only about 75% of the submitted proposals made the final cut. I'm sorry to say that one of the Para proposals wasn't accepted, but we will still be proudly sponsoring four sessions this fall.

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. 8:00-8:50 AM, Thursday Oct. 29.

Online Reference Question Protocol, to be presented by Nora Hillyer, Reference Librarian at the Criss Library at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. 9:00-9:50 AM, Friday Oct. 30.

Creating Video Tutorials Using Screen-recorders, to be presented by Greg Sunderman, the Instructional Designer at Northeast Community College. 2:50-3:40 PM, Friday Oct. 30.

Genealogy in the Public Library, to be presented by Marcia Stewart, who recently presented a genealogy workshop at Southeast Community College. 2:50 - 3:40 PM, Friday Oct. 30.

Please note that times and dates are tentative, and sessions may be shifted around slightly once we get closer to October.
