December 11th, 2007

Dear Colleagues:

In case any of you are available on Friday, 11 Jan 2008.

We are pleased to invite you to attend the Forum on Library Education to be
held on Friday, January 11, 2008 from 1:30 to 4:30 pm during the upcoming
ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This Forum is sponsored
by the American Library Association (ALA) and its Committee on Education
(COE). This Forum continues the dialog on issues in library and information
science education and it identifies new issues and new challenges
confronting our profession.

The Forum will focus on the doctoral student experience in schools of
library and information science. As part of this effort, a unique program
will feature a researchapalooza where doctoral students will present their
research to the audience in a mere ninety seconds. Immediately following the
presentations a thirty-minute poster session will take place followed by
facilitated group discussions about the gaps and links between research and
practice. Facilitated discussion topics will include
- Current Status of LIS Ph.D. programs
- Gaps between Practice and Research
- Overlaps between practice and research
- Connections between ALA and LIS student work
