Hello from the LibTech Roundtable!

It was great seeing everyone at OLA 2014 in Salem. I hope everyone is enjoying this brief blast of good weather as well.

OLA 2014

The LibTech Roundtable co-sponsored a host of great sessions during the conference and the materials are now available for all to see on Northwest Central:

- UX Bootcamp/Librarians as Designers
- Open Source in Oregon Libraries
- Maker Spaces: Make My Day or Break My Space?
- Social Media For Professional Engagement


It’s time for our 2014 election, and we want you to stand for office!  This is a great chance to get involved with OLA and become part of a relatively new round table.  Officers needed are Secretary and Vice Chair/Chair-Elect.

If you are willing to serve, please email Elsa Loftis (libtechrt at gmail.com) by end of business, May 16th, with the following information: 
1)      The office you’ll run for
2)      Name of your organization/workplace
3)      Your title
4)      A brief (2-4 sentence)  description of you and your interest in library technology  
The slate of nominations will be sent out the week of May 19th, and voting will take place in a two week window shortly after.  New officers will be announced in early to mid-June.
You will need to be a member of LibTechRT to run for an office and to vote. If you’re not currently a LibTechRT member, it’s easy to join by just adding our round table to your membership – it’s just $5/year!
