Marygrove librarians to present at the 2012 annual MASAL conference Friday, March 2

On Friday, March 2, two of your Marygrove College librarians will be presenting at the 2012 annual conference of the Michigan Academy of Science, Arts, and Letters. MASAL is  “regional, professional organization that facilitates scholarly exchange through annual conferences and a journal of outstanding papers.”

Jennifer Meacham’s presentation is titled, “The History, Mystery, and Legacy of the American Library of Nazi Banned Books.” Christine Malmsten’s presentation is titled, “Open Access in Scholarly Publishing: Revolutionary Impact and Barriers to Adoption.” Former Marygrove librarian Mike Barnes will also be at Alma; he’s co-presenting “Working Together – Maximizing Access and Discoverability to Archives Collections Through the Catalog.”

Keep an eye on the library’s Twitter feed (@MarygroveLib) for real-time updates about the conference. Judging by the other titles in the Library & Information Sciences program (pdf, see pages 11-14), the day will be chock-full of interesting ideas that Jennifer and Christine will bring back for you.
