Your NPSIG crew is excited to announce that we’re leading a virtual workshop at this year’s BOBCATSSS 2014 conference! BOBCATSSS, the annual symposium organized by and for library and information science students, will be taking place in Barcelona, Spain from January 29th- 31st. In the spirit of this year’s conference theme “Library (R)evolution: Promoting Sustainable Information Practices”, we will lead a 60 minute virtual workshop on library advocacy. This workshop will 1) introduce those in the library and information science fields to the concept of advocacy; 2) explain why advocacy is so important to the future of our profession; and 3) provide tips for being a better advocate for libraries in various contexts. At the end of the workshop, participants will be prepared to have conversations that promote our field and profession. Our workshop is an opportunity for both conference attendees onsite in Barcelona (lucky!) and those unable to make it to BOBCATSSS this year to participate in building a better future for our profession. See below for important details and links.
