Registration is now open for the Mid-South E-Resources Symposium and Mississippi State University Libraries Emerging Technologies Summit being held at Mississippi State University in Starkville, MS on August 11-12, 2011.  Both of these day-long conferences presents a valuable professional growth opportunity for anyone involved in developing, maintaining and assessing a library’s electronic and technological resources.  Register for both conferences and receive a 20% discount; NASIG members receive an additional discount.

The Mid-South E-Resources Symposium  on Thursday, August 11th will host keynote speaker Matt Goldner, Product and Technology Advocate at OCLC, who will discuss cloud computing and the future of libraries.  Come join us for this gathering of librarians, library staff, and library science students, featuring a focused symposium on the use and management of electronic resources in libraries. This event provides a unique and affordable opportunity to enhance knowledge of issues surrounding the acquisition, operation, collection and management of e-resources in libraries today.

The MSU Libraries Emerging Technologies Summit  on Friday, August 12th features the role of emerging technologies in academic libraries.  Are you wondering what iPads, wireless drone quadricopters, jQTouch, and Jog the Web have in common?  Come meet our Steal-this-Idea speakers at the Summit and find out how they are using these technologies and more to keep our libraries innovative and relevant.  Aaron Schmidt, design expert and UX guru, will provide the touchstone for our discussions, sharing his expertise in creating (good) user experience on the web.

We’ll see you there!
