This pre-conference came free with LLA 2011 registrations. Visit the event page here for more info.
The 2011 Scholar Librarian of the Year Award went to Tony Fonseca. Although he was not present to accept the award due to unforeseen circumstances, the award was announced by ACRL-LA Awards Committee Chair Debra Rollins at the Meet & Greet event.
Here is video of that; sorry about the poor quality.
This year it wasn't possible to get a room on-site in the evening, so the ACRL-LA Meet and Greet will be a breakfast event. It and the LLA Academic Meeting are listed together, but only to save space on the schedule-- they are separate events: The Meet and Greet costs $5 like other years, and the LLA Academic Meeting afterward is of course free. To make it clear:
Thursday, March 17, 2011
8:00 am - 8:45 am, Breakfast ACRL-LA Meet and Greet ($5 ticketed event)
8:45 am - 9:45 am, LLA Academic Meeting (free and open)
So, between 8 and 8:45, only ticketed members can enter, and after 8:45, the LLA Academic Meeting begins and the leftovers are free for all. That way, people who pay for tickets will get what they asked for, and leftovers won't be wasted.
Here is the menu:
Cut Fruit Tray with Yogurt Dip
Coffee (regular and Decaffeinated)
