ATTENTION LIBRARIANS AND TEACHERS

NERGC’s fourth Librarians’ and Teachers’ Day will be held on Wednesday, 17 April 2013 at the Radisson Hotel Manchester in conjunction with the Twelfth New England Regional Genealogical Conference. The day will be devoted to showing attendees how genealogy can enhance curricula, attract new patrons, and highlight collections. Librarians’ and Teachers’ Day provides the opportunity for professionals to learn how genealogy can serve them in their dual roles as curators of their unique collections and as ambassadors of genealogy resources for their schools and libraries. All librarians and teachers who work with family history patrons or genealogy-related research materials will benefit from this special event. Sessions include Getting Patrons Started in Genealogy by Christine Sharbrough, MSLIS, CG; Creating Digital Collections for Genealogists by D. Joshua Taylor; ProQuest Information and Learning by William Forsyth; Tracing Your Immigrant Ancestors by Lisa Alzo; and What Genealogists Wish Librarians Knew by Marianne B. Marcussen. The cost is $40.00 per person and includes lunch compliments of ProQuest. For information about each session, see the full conference brochure at: www.nergc.org/Program.html.
