Colloquia Series Kicks Off September 21


The School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University
is launching its fall semester Colloquia series on September 21, 2011, with
two must-attend presentations. The kickoff also marks the return of the SLIS
Career Colloquia, a series of presentations dedicated to helping LIS
professionals in their job searches. 


Reserve an hour at lunchtime on September 21 to hear a lively discussion
about the future of health care, energy, consumer habits, education, and
other impactful areas that could change our lives. The Chief Executive
Officer and Publisher of Plunkett Research, Ltd., Jack Plunkett, will share
insight from his most recent award-winning book, The Next Boom - What You
Absolutely, Positively Need to Know About the World Between Now and 2025.
This thought-provoking session is free to attend and will be held online
from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. PT, on Elluminate.


Later that same day at 5:30 p.m. PT, Blane Dessy, Executive Director of the
Federal Library and Information Center Committee; and Nancy Faget, Senior
Program Planning Specialist for Library Services and Content Management at
the U.S. Government Printing Office will be our first speakers in the NEW!
for fall 2011 Career Colloquia. Mr. Dessy and Ms. Faget will provide tips
for landing a job in federal libraries and government agencies. If you're
