MLA/Lowell

Last week found us in Lowell, MA at the MLA 21st Century Literacies Program. Here is a summary from the Conference Co-Chairs:

"21st Century Literacies” is the first collaboration of its kind, bringing together the interests and cooperation of the Massachusetts Library Association, the New England Chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries, and the Massachusetts Center for the Book.  The conference is divided into two themes revolving around the literacies of today and of the future, with the first day centering on literacy and readers’ advisory programs, and the second day focusing on technology issues.  These programs point out the many overlapping issues we are facing in our library profession, and the importance of reaching across associations to partner with a diverse network of colleagues.  We are also pleased to host this conference in the multicultural city of Lowell, offering us an exciting backdrop of culture, history, and learning.
