Registration is open for the 2012 ALAO Conference, to be held at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, OH on Friday, October 26th.  This year's theme is "Impact Factor: The Value of Academic Libraries".

Looking over the list of programs being offered, there are some very interesting sessions that will make tough choices.  We hope you will pencil in two sessions in particular.  At 1:30, CMCIG will hold a Roundtable discussion on the common Core Standards with the ever-fabulous Kathy Yoder leading the group.  At 2:30, CMCIG is sponsoring "Storytime in the Academic Library"; Jennifer Smith (NKU) will tell the group about how she started a children's storytime at her library and give suggestions on how to bring children's and family programming to your academic library.

Remember, Early Bird Conference Rates run through Sept. 19th!  Here is a link to register:  http://www.alaoweb.org/events?eventId=518633

Hope to see you there!
