YALSA, or the Young Adult Library Services Association, and is a division of ALA. If you are interested in library services for teens or young adults, note that the national YALSA  symposium will be in Portland November 6-8th. There is a discounted registration rate for students. I learned that two Oregon school librarians, Gregory Lum and Megan Mathes, will join author Gene Yang and four teens to co-present a session: Teaching American Born Chinese: Discussing Race and Identity with Today's Teens.
