Handheld Librarian online conference

Here's something that might be of interest to CSSISies CSSISizens (thanks, Ken): the first ever “Handheld Librarian Online Conference: An online conference about Mobile Library Services” will be held on Thursday, July 30 from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Eastern time.  Discussion will center around how libraries can provide services on  mobile devices that are increasingly used for a wide variety of purposes including communication, internet access, text messaging, and entertainment.  The program, sponsored by Alliance Library System, LearningTimes and Infoquest, will include a variety of ways to collaborate, network and learn from a  group of experts in the field. The schedule is here and includes a panel session called Everything We Know About Implementing a Kindle Loan Program, moderated by Rene Erlandson, Director of Virtual Services @ the University of Nebraska Omaha.  The cost is $49 for one person, $89 for a group of 2 or more people logged in from one computer.
