SLIS at SEFLIN 2010 Regional Conference

Over 270 library employees from the southeast Florida region attended the July 22nd annual regional SEFLIN (Southeast Florida Library Information Network) Conference.  This year’s theme was “LibTech 2010:  Services on a Shoestring.”

The attendees gathered at the Kovens Conference Center on the Florida International University Biscayne Bay Campus to hear keynote speaker Sarah Houghton-Jan, San Jose Public Library, speak on the effects of technology increases and budgets cuts on libraries and how these will shape the library of the future.  Several USF/SLIS alumni made presentations on topics ranging from using Facebook to reach users, sharpening search skills using popular search engines, free Internet resources in place of databases, and serving distance learners.  These included Meagan Albright (Nova Southeastern University), Daniel Tan (Broward College), Lauri Rebar (Florida Atlantic University), Bebe Chang (Broward County Library), and Sunem Beaton-Garcia (Broward College).

SLIS was one of 17 exhibitors at the conference.  Representing SLIS was Maria Almaguer Treadwell, coordinator of the East Coast Program.
