      Ohio Valley Group of Technical Services Librarians 2011 Conference
      Technical Services Renaissance
      Shriver Center, Miami University, Oxford, OH
      May 15-17, 2011
       
      In this time of turmoil for libraries, some Technical Services librarians
      are building a foundation for the future.  Some study past successes and
      failures to guide future decisions and actions. Others apply current tools
      and concepts to reinvent existing services and to create innovative new
      services more relevant to today’s information environment. Finally, some are
      creating entirely new concepts and paradigms that will help drive the future
      of libraries. The foundation we are building will support a rebirth of
      function, form and purpose — a Technical Services Renaissance.
       
      Keynote speakers:
      Karen Coyle, Librarian and Consultant
      Susan Gibbons, Vice Provost and the Andrew H. and Janet Dayton Neilly Dean
      of the River Campus Libraries, University of Rochester
       
      Program:
      This year’s conference will cover a wide range of topics and issues – from
      e-resources and metadata to marketing and management – in a mixture of
      presentation formats, including lightning rounds, Birds of a Feather, and
      the return of the Free For All Forum.  Program information can be found at
       
      We are also currently looking for opportunities to provide continuing
