SLA 2011: Military Libraries Division Programming

I’ve already shared information with you about LexisNexis at SLA and the outstanding programming coming up in Philly from the Division of Government Information in this post: SLA DGI PROGRAMMING AT SLA 2011. I’ll be at SLA and if you are attending, I hope to see you there. I’ll be blogging the conference and live tweets from SLA programs @libraryfocus. My Twitter feed can be viewed on the right sidebar, here on the Goverment Info Pro.

I wanted to make sure you knew about the Military Libraries Division (MLD) programming as well. MLD also created a PDF version of their program/event schedule that you can print out and carry with you. Download SLA 2011 MLD Sessions PDF.
