May 18 – Conference Recap – Come talk with your colleagues about what happened at the 2012 MLA/DLA Joint Conference. Find out what you missed because you were in another session! Time permitting, we’ll also share tips and ideas for conference attendance, from packing your suitcase to managing your time while you’re there.

WIMBA instructions
To join us, just access the WIMBA meeting room. The meeting room name is md_meetingMLA  While we recommend that you have access to a microphone and speakers for these sessions, it is not required. You do not need to attend all three sessions, and if you need to jump in a little late or leave early (or eat lunch), please do! Questions? Please contact Alison Cody at
