Contributed Papers at SLA 2011

Do you want to learn more about your fellow SLA members’ successes in the workplace? Do you want to know how they are becoming “Future Ready”? Then be sure to attend at least one of the three Contributed Papers sessions at SLA 2011 in Philadelphia.

Contributed Papers give SLA members an excellent opportunity to showcase their research and scholarship, and attendees will take away many exciting, innovative ideas that they can use in their own workplaces. In Philadelphia, the topics will relate to the conference theme of “Future Ready” and to at least one of the three sub-themes: communicating value through strategic alignment, leveraging technology for innovation, and using knowledge sharing to encourage collaboration.

This year’s paper topics and their presenters are as follows:

“Communicating Value through Strategic Alignment”
Melanie Browne, Maple Leaf Foods, ThinkFOOD! Information Café

“Librarians and Libraries Increase Profitability: It’s What You Do that Counts!”
Margaret Carroll, University of North Texas
