2012 LTAIG Conference Highlights

Posted on

Yesterday, the Library Technicians and Assistants Interest Group (LTAIG) held its annual, one-day conference.

Highlights included:

  • Keynote speaker Sharon Snow started everything off with a bang! What a pleasure to have her there with us to speak about her relationship with libraries.
  • Jacquie Brown was “Skyped in” all the way from Qatar and shared her experiences as a Library Technician abroad.
  • David Mercer was “David -on-the-spot” with his insightful Powerpoint do’s and don’ts. Thank you David….we will never again look at Powerpoint the same.
  • An NLLA General Meeting took place with our LTA Representative election, Constitutional Amendments, and Advocacy Update. Our new LTA Representative is Julia Mayo.
  • We were very pleased to welcome Robert Greenwood and his captivating discussion, “Libraries: Knowledge, Engagement, Mobilization”.
  • Yvonne Sullivan from the St. John’s Public Library gave us some insight into workplace conflict, how to spot those problem areas, and tips on how to “deal”.
  • The day was rounded off by a panel discussion with John Griffin (Newfoundland & Labrador Public Library), Karen Darby (MUN Libraries), Allison Stamp (Legislative Library), and Lorraine Jackson (MUN Libraries). What a great group to share their experiences.

On behalf of the NLLA Executive Committee, a big thank you to all our presenters, and the conference planning committee who made everything happen: Julia Mayo, Susan Fry, Maria Belangier, Karen Darby, Rita Roberts, Donna Inkpen, and Lorraine Jackson. Thank you all for another great conference!
