Curious about ARLIS/NA and how it works?

Confused about the brand new MemberClicks directory?

Please stop by the ARLIS/NA Informational table / MemberClicks Helpdesk in the exhibitions hall in Denver! Despite the fact the name of this new feature in the exhibition hall does not roll off the tongue, we’re hoping it will serve as a valuable resource to both new and seasoned ARLIS/NE members.

As you may have guessed the table is serving two functions.

First of all we are hoping to be a repository of printed information on ARLIS/NA and its various groups-Committees, Divisions, Sections, Round Tables/Interest Groups, Chapters, etc. [If you have responsibility for one of these groups and would like to share information with fellow ARLIS members, please bring handouts to be distributed.] We will also be staffed on Saturday, so please stop by to chat. We will answer questions and/or try to put you in touch with someone who can speak to you more about your ARLIS-related interests. Mentors, please encourage your mentees to come by.

In addition, we are very pleased to serve as a MemberClicks HelpDesk. Although I don’t think any of us can claim to be experts on the new MemberClicks directory, we look forward to introducing you to some of the basic functionality of the new system. If you have not had an opportunity to use it yet, it’s really wonderful!

Printed information will be available both Saturday and Sunday, while it lasts.

The table will be staffed on Saturday May 3rd, 9:30 am-12:30 pm and 5-7 pm.

Look forward to seeing many of you in Denver!

Best,

No conflict time for exhibitors

The Grand Hyatt Denver presents a unique challenge to the perennial goal of having strong attendance in the exhibits — there is a hotel side where the exhibits and the plenary speakers will be located, and there is an adjacent convention center in which most sessions will be located. In a Denver First, one and a half hours on Sat. and Sun. have been designated “exhibits no conflict times.” See you all at the Exhibits!

As Exhibits Coordinator for the ARLIS/NA conference in Denver, I am pleased to send you this greeting!I’d like to encourage you to make a special effort to visit our vendors in the Exhibits Hall during the conference. They will be exhibiting their goods from Saturday, May 3 through Sunday, May 4. I personally always look forward to going into the Exhibits Hall every year and seeing what our vendors have displayed at their tables and booths. It’s always a treat to actually see an item in person! This is also a great opportunity to chat with the vendors and thank them for their sponsorship and support of our annual conference. Click here for the link to our preliminary list of exhibitors http://arlisna-mw.lib.byu.edu/denver2008/exhibitors_2008.htm and here for the link to our list of sponsors http://arlisna-mw.lib.byu.edu/denver2008/sponsors.htm.

If you are a novice or are a little shy with the vendors, we have a special “Meet the Vendors” program just for you! This is a great opportunity to be introduced to and visit with the vendors in the Exhibits Hall accompanied by a more experienced ARLIS member. Further information can be found at: http://arlisna-mw.lib.byu.edu/denver2008/meetexhibitors_form.htm. The deadline to sign up for this program is April 16, 2008.

In addition, we will have exclusive exhibit hours that will not conflict with any of the sessions, as well as the popular Silent Auction and new features – Web 2.0 Kiosk and ArtTECHtonic!

Please make sure you make your way around the Exhibits Hall and meet our vendors on Saturday and Sunday, May 3rd and 4th!

Meet the Vendors program:

Some folks, even long-time members, are a bit shy with vendors, or don’t know what to talk about. This Denver First offers the opportunity to visit exhibitors accompanied by old hands in the exhibits, and be personally introduced to the exhibitors who contribute their time and support to our annual conference.
