Read the 2014 Contributed Papers for SLA 2014!

How do journalists verify the information they get through social media, and what role can information professionals play in this process? Can embedding a library hackfest into a first-year computer science course be an effective method of providing information literacy instruction and advocating for open access? What difference do professional associations supporting the library and information profession make to the members of the profession, to the employers of those members, and to the profession itself?

These and other interesting questions were addressed by SLA members who presented “contributed papers” at the SLA 2014 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO. A total of 12 such papers were presented, four on each day of the conference. The contributed papers emerged from a process that began in October 2013, when a call for abstracts was posted on the SLA blog and on discussion lists. Roughly two dozen abstracts were submitted; from among these, 12 were selected to be developed into full papers.

The abstracts and papers were evaluated by a team of SLA members: Stacey Greenwell (chair), Joe Anteau, Giovanna Badia, Juanita Richardson, and Erin Waltz. The team members ultimately selected Organizing and Embedding a Library Hackfest into a First-Year Course, by Sarah Shuja of York University in Toronto, as the best contributed paper. Sarah will receive a free registration to the SLA 2015 Annual Conference in Boston, and she will be the subject of the “SLA Member Interview” in the September-October 2014 issue of Information Outlook.

NATO’s relevance and purpose is under continuous scrutiny from member and partner states, though the challenges on the alliance’s Eastern and Southern flanks demonstrate a need for unity.
