The Mid-South E-Resources Symposium

http://library.msstate.edu/eresource on Thursday, August 11th 
will host keynote speaker Matt Goldner, Product and Technology 
Advocate at OCLC, who will discuss cloud computing and the future 
of libraries.  Come join us for this gathering of librarians, 
library staff, and library science students, featuring a focused 
symposium on the use and management of electronic resources in 
libraries. This event provides a unique and affordable 
opportunity to enhance knowledge of issues surrounding the 
acquisition, operation, collection and management of e-resources 
in libraries today.

The MSU Libraries Emerging Technologies Summit

http://library.msstate.edu/emergingtech/ on Friday, August 12th 
features the role of emerging technologies in academic libraries. 
Are you wondering what iPads, wireless drone quadricopters, 
jQTouch, and Jog the Web have in common?  Come meet our 
Steal-this-Idea speakers at the Summit and find out how they are 
using these technologies and more to keep our libraries 
innovative and relevant.  Aaron Schmidt, design expert and UX 
guru, will provide the touchstone for our discussions, sharing 
his expertise in creating (good) user experience on the web.

We'll see you there!
