DMIL programming at SLA 2014

Are you ready for SLA 2014 in Vancouver?

March 7th 2014

June is approaching quickly and now is the time to start planning. Here is a brief overview of DMIL’s programming at this years annual conference in Vancouver, beautiful British Columbia!

 Sunday, June 8th 2014

The Evolving Information Professional:  Changing Roles, New Opportunities.

1:30 to 3:00 p.m. 

Presented by the Government Information Division and co-hosted by the Knowledge Management Division, the Petroleum & Energy Resources Division, the Museums, Arts & Humanities Division, and the Military Libraries Division

The definition and role of a librarian has changed dramatically over the past 20 years. At the same time, new information-related fields have emerged, offering new opportunities. Our panel will look at where these changes have taken us professionally and where they see them leading us in the future. 

How Not to Run a Meeting: Facilitation Skills 101 for Librarians

3:30 to 5:00 p.m. 

Presented by the Military Libraries Division and co-hosted by the Petroleum & Energy Resources Division

 Why Facilitation Matters: A Comedy of (Meeting) Errors. Remember the best (and worst) meetings you’ve ever attended? This humorous set of interactive skits will show you why some meetings and events are truly awful, and why the best ones are often the ones that are most skilfully (and sometimes very subtly) facilitated. Our speaker Dave Pollard retired from paid work in 2010, after 35 years as an advisor to small enterprises, with a focus on sustainability, innovation, and understanding complexity.   

Monday June 9th

Finding Those Who Don’t Want to Be Found Using Social Media and Other Cyber Tools

Presented by the Social Science Division – Public Policy Section, co-hosted: Military Libraries Division and Competitive Intelligence Division

 We have all seen the crime shows where with a few clicks using social media—a key piece of evidence in finding someone who doesn’t want to be found turns up, but how hard is this to do in real life?  Come find out from one of the principals of a leading investigative agency in Canada!  Our speaker will discuss how they use social media and other cyber tools to discover this type of information.  Emphasis will be placed on resources, tips and techniques that you can add to your research toolkit.
