As we enter a new era where expanding uses of information technology and a
dramatically changing demographic, political and economic environment are
challenging us to deliver our services in new ways, it is critical that
librarians become successful and articulate advocates for  such traditional
values as intellectual freedom, equality of access to information and the
preservation and promulgation of the full array of thought and ideas.

This program will provide academic librarians with the tools necessary to
convince policy makers and funders of the key role we and out services play
in the Information Age. It will include skills in making presentations,
effectively dealing with decision-makers, those who influence
decision-makers and the media.

This program is designed to be highly interactive and will allow
participants to share their experience and expertise, as well as to learn
new ideas and strategies.

Hope to see your there!
