We would like to thank everyone who helped out, attended and spoke. Special thanks to our speakers, Michelle Kraft and Sarah Houghton, for coming and speaking to the Midwest Chapter. A great thank you to our planning committee members as well. Thank you for all your hard work!

Welcome to Peoria!

Midwest MLA 2013 programming starts today! Check out the schedule and program on the conference program page.

 

I’m also happy to announce that there we have recruited a couple of bloggers who will be posting to ConnectMidwest about Midwest MLA 2013! Be sure to check the blog for their unique perspectives on attending this conference.

 

 

Mentor and Mentee Meeting!

The Mentor/Mentee Meet & Greet will take place in the Fond du Lac rooms A-C from 5:00-5:30 PM.

Linda Walton, President-elect of the MLA, will give a presentation for students and scholarship winners.  M/M pairs can listen to the presentation or mingle in the other end of the space or go to the atrium and relax at the Manager’s reception for some personal conversation.

Construction on I-55

We have reports that travel on I-55 just south of I-80 (around Joliet) is difficult because of the construction.  If you are driving from the Chicago area, please consider an alternate route. Note the slow areas on the map below.

This is a last minute call for bloggers and photographers (and tweeters) for Midwest MLA 2013! We’re looking for bloggers and photographers capture Midwest MLA 2013 from their unique perspectives.

It’s a great way to get involved with the meeting, chat with fellow librarians and involve who are sadly absent.
