LexisNexis at SLA 2011

It’s summer conference season again and I want to share some information with you about LexisNexis at the 2011 SLA Annual Conference, being held June 12-15 in Philadelphia, PA.

Exhibit Hall (INFO-EXPO)

LexisNexis Booth

LexisNexis will be at Booth #411 and the hours are:

  • Sunday, June 12: 12 – 5 p.m.
  • Monday, June 13: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, June 14: 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

There will be a variety of demo stations available to provide you with a broad learning experience at the booth. Stop by and talk to the LexisNexis product and research specialists about how to get more research value out of the LexisNexis sources you use most often and learn about what’s new. It’s your time to ask questions and learn more. LexisNexis is proud to provide the conference registration bags for 2011. The bag is made of recycled material, is light weight and can be used to gather information on the show floor and carry with you from session to session.

Sponsorships/Educational Programs:

LexisNexis will sponsor many important conference events. LexisNexis librarians are also SLA members and/or regularly participate in the educational programs. Check the online planner or SLA Final Conference Program for a more in-depth description and the latest details.
