Evolve at MLA/DLA 2018: Human Libraries!

PUTMANLaksameewebACRL-MD is excited to be the official sponsor of a half day pre-conference on Wednesday May 2nd at MLA/DLA titled “Creating and Managing a Human Library.”  In this program attendees will learn how to organize and operate a human library at their own institution from not only academic librarians like Towson University’s Laksamee Putnam but also public librarians.

In addition at the end of the conference on Friday May 4th there will be a session featuring a working human library made up of conference attendees.  This is a different kind of program where you can learn about the topic through observation and your own experience either as the reader of a human book, or by volunteering to be a book yourself!

For more information about either program, including how you could volunteer contact either current ACRL-MD Vice President Mike Kiel at skiel@ubalt.edu, or Laksamee Putnam at lputnam@towson.edu
