FLIP meetings for the 2023-2024 academic year are happening! Join us on Friday, October 13 for the first FLIP meeting for Fall 2023. Topic is still TBD but rest assured it will be something interesting, intriguing, and inspiring. Watch this space!
At April’s FLIP meeting we will talk about the Alaska Library Catalog with Interim Manager Margaret Hatty!
Mark your calendars! Friday, April 28th, from noon – 1pm.
We’ll be meeting in Library Room 306, but a Zoom link will be coming soon for those who aren’t able to join us in-person. Feel free to bring your lunch. There will be snacks, too!
Sorry for causing any confusion.
The next FLIP meeting will be Friday, March 31 from noon-1pm in Library Room 306.
Please join us for FLIP’s third meeting of 2023!
March’s FLIP meeting will be a recap discussion of the AkLA conference, followed by a brief presentation about the Alaska Digital Library.
Sometimes conferences are such a blur that it’s nice to take time to reflect on the experience with others and hear their impressions.
The Alaska Digital Library is a program managed by the Alaska Library Network. Jodi’s presentation will include a tour of the patron’s interface and the back-end librarian interface where reports are run and content purchases are made.
Mark your calendars! Friday, March 31 from noon – 1pm. You are welcome to bring your lunch, there will be cookies!
We’re meeting in Library Room 306, but a Zoom link will be coming soon for those who aren’t able to join us in-person.
Please help us spread the word about FLIP and forward this message on to anyone who may be interested. Suggested topics and other ideas for future FLIP meetings are always welcome!
Library school students and those new to the profession are often encouraged to join and participate in library and archives associations… but there are so many! How does a new librarian or archivist evaluate which (and if) associations will be beneficial to their professional development?
FLIP will ask attendees to share their experiences, questions, and advice on this topic – even just sharing the name of a smaller library/archive-related association is valuable information!
We will also talk about conferences! Which ones are you interested in going to? Which ones have you attended in the past? What is their value?
Mark your calendars! Friday, February 24 from noon – 1pm. You are welcome to bring your lunch, there will be cookies! We’ll be meeting in Library Room 306, but a Zoom link will be coming soon for those who aren’t able to join us in-person.
FLIP has returned! Hope to see you on Friday, January 20th, noon – 1pm, for the first meeting of 2023 when we’ll discuss current library job openings in Alaska, including those at the UAA/APU Consortium Library. We’ll even have cookies! More details about the meeting location and a Zoom link will be coming soon.
FLIP meetings are open to anyone interested in current issues in the information field. Please help us spread the word about FLIP and share this with anyone who may be interested. Do you have any ideas for future FLIP topics? Let us know!
