We're very excited that IFLA is meeting in Columbus, OH 13-19 August 2016.
Please read the information about Early Registration, etc. below.


The  <http://www.alise.org/> Association for Library and Information Science
Education (ALISE) and the  <http://www.asist.org> Association for
Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T) are planning a Meet & Greet Dinner
on Sun., 14 August, after the IFLA Exhibition Opening Party, which is 4-6
(16:00-18:00). Details and a request for RSVP will follow. Please mark your
calendars for this informal dinner.


Looking forward to seeing you in Columbus!






We're hoping that many of you have heard the news that Columbus, Ohio will
be the site for this year's World Library and Information Congress,
sponsored by the
ination=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ifla.org> International Federation of Library
Associations and Institutions. The Congress expects to attract nearly 5,000
librarians from more than 100 countries around the globe.


As co-chairs of the 2016 National Committee, we're asking for your help in
getting the word out about the Congress. It's been 15 years since the
Congress was in the United States and the National Committee is hard at work
to bring delegates an exceptional experience!


Registration for the Congress is now open and
ination=http%3A%2F%2F2016.ifla.org%2Fregistration> early registration is
available until May 17. Visit the official Congress
ination=http%3A%2F%2F2016.ifla.org> website for information on the Congress
schedule, calls for papers and library tours offered.


Check out this

highlighting the city of Columbus and its award-winning libraries.


We hope to see you in August.
