You are invited to attend the Heartland School Library Conference, June 14-15, 2010, in Omaha, Nebraska. At this conference all school librarians have the extraordinary opportunity to join colleagues for stimulating conversations and learning from two nationally recognized library leaders: Cassandra Barnett, President of the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) and Pam Berger, technology guru and school library advocate.
The conference will focus on the development of an enhanced vision for 21st Century School Libraries. It will also expand the definition of information literacy to include “…multiple literacies, including digital, visual, textual, and technological, that are crucial for all learners to acquire to be successful in our information-rich society” (AASL, 2009) for Nebraska school librarians and other stakeholders in the AASL Region 9 area.
During these two days, school librarians will come together to learn, laugh, and be inspired in a professional setting. The University of Nebraska at Omaha Library Science programs, with its partners, the University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK) Library Media program and the Nebraska Educational Media Association (NEMA), have created this inaugural event to enhance 21st Century school library programs, promote the AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner, and provide networking opportunities.
