2010 WVLS Technology Seminar

2010 WVLS Technology Seminar
Wisconsin Valley Library Service is hosting a technology seminar on Thursday September 23rd, 2010. The focus of this seminar will be on eBooks, eReaders, and their relevancy in libraries. Opportunities for open discussion and a question and answer session will be available. There will be short presentations on three of the most popular eReader brands: Amazon Kindle, Sony eReader, and Barnes&Noble Nook.

We have room for about thirty-five (35) guests and are initially reserving twenty-five (25) places for public libraries and ten (10) spaces for K-12 and higher education libraries. To give as many libraries access as possible, initial registration is limited to one (1) attendee per library as space allows. After Sept. 15th, any remaining places will be opened on a first come first serve basis until spaces are filled.

Snacks and beverages will be available, but lunch will be up to you. There are several excellent dining options within walking distance of the Venue.

There is no registration fee for this event. There will be a drawing for one or more prizes (to be determined) at the conclusion of the event. Some items in the possible prize list include eReaders, eBook vouchers, or mileage compensation.

ACTION: Directors, RSVP via email by Sept. 15th 2010 to Joshua Klingbeil –it.director@wvls.lib.wi.us– at Wisconsin Valley Library Service and let him know who will be attending from your library. After Sept. 15th, if there are any spots remaining, a second call will go out to fill them. Those spots will be filled first come first serve starting Sept. 16th.
