Agenda for MLAIB DG @ ALA Midwinter

Saturday, 25 January
10:30 am 11:30 am
PCC-115 B

Convenor : David Oberhelman

I.       Introductions

II.      Vendor updates

a.       Ryan Bernier, EBSCO

b.      Stephen Brooks, Proquest

c.       Kate Hanley, Gale | Cengage Learning

III.     MLA update (Barbara Chen)

IV.     Discovery services and the MLAIB

V.      Topics for Annual

For item IV, you might want to have thought of times when you’ve used or taught discovery services in conjunction with the MLAIB, or the MLAIB instead of a discovery service, or vice versa. The idea is less a debate of their merits than how we help students navigate a world that we’ve made even more complex – and Google or Google Scholar look increasingly simple.

If a volunteer to take minutes could step forward now, he or she would be welcomed.
