UNCG’s Department of Library and Information Studies is pleased and excited to have been selected as a satellite site for this year’s AASL Fall Forum.

The American Association of School Librarians (AASL), will hold its multi-day national institute, the Fall Forum, October 17-18, 2014 in St. Louis, MO. Attendees may also choose to participate at one of nine satellite locations: Greensboro, NC, Montgomery, AL.; Atlanta, GA.; Johnston, IA; Houston, TX; Mercedes, TX; Richardson, TX; Norfolk, VA., or Vancouver, WA.

Held during non-AASL national conference years, the Fall Forum is a more intimate event and focuses on one topic of importance to the profession. The 2014 theme is School Librarians in the Anytime Anywhere Learning Landscape.

Registration is now open. Rates prior to Sept. 17 are AASL member: $289; ALA member: $339; and nonmember: $404. AASL members can also opt to attend with their administrator, technology/curriculum specialist, or an AASL student member at a special AASL member PLUS rate of $520. The PLUS member rate includes the AASL member and one of the above guests. Registration rates increase on Sept 18.

Please plan to join us on the campus of UNCG in October for this extraordinary professional opportunity.
