2015 Conference Highlights: Poster Sessions, Silent Auction, and more

Each week between now and the 2015 MLA/DLA Conference, we’re highlighting one of the conference sessions sponsored by ACRL MD. The conference will be held from May 6-8 at the Clarion Resort Hotel in Ocean City, MD.  For more information on the conference, please take a look at the conference program (PDF). To register, visit the MLA conference page.

The conference is just a week away! Here are a few more things to know before you get to Ocean City.

Librarians’ Happy Hour with ACRL MD
Wednesday, May 7
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
After the All Conference Reception, continue the conversations with colleagues from across the state at Liquid Assets, just a short walk from the conference hotel. We’ll provide some hors d’oeuvres, and there will be a cash bar with specials. Librarians of all stripes are invited to join us, so we hope to see you there!

Poster Sessions
Thursday, May 8
8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Poster authors will be present from 10:00 – 10:30 a.m. and 2:45 – 3:30 p.m.
Visit the Poster Session at this year’s MLA/DLA conference in Room 5. Here you will find presentations from some of this past year’s amazing projects in Maryland and Delaware libraries. On Thursday, you can stop by at any time of the day to investigate the posters yourself, or you can drop in during the designated times (10:0-10:30 and 2:45-3:30) when the poster session authors will be there. Hear from professionals in every area of library service: what they are doing and how they are doing it. Get ideas, network with colleagues, and see what is new all in one place.

Silent Auction
Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Friday 8:00 a.m. – 10:40 a.m.

Once again the conference will feature a silent auction with something for everyone! Be sure to check out the display in the vendor lobby on the first floor and find something you just cannot go home without!  Winners may pick up their items after 11:15am on Friday.

Hospitality Suite
Once again we will have the Hospitality Suite in Room 318 – stop by and kick up your feet and unwind. Complimentary amenities, including snacks, television and games will be available. Take a moment for yourself or to catch up with others amongst the hustle and bustle of the conference.

Networking Uncommons
Take part in the MLA/DLA Networking Uncommons Suite in Room 317 to make connections with other conference goers. Sign up in advance or at the conference to schedule a meeting, discussion, lightning talks, brain-storm – it’s all up to you!
