With less than a week until ASEE 2009 in Austin, the final details are being hammered out on what should be a wonderful conference for ELD members.
The schedule is available at http://depts.washington.edu/englib/eld/conf/conf09.php.
We have 25 papers for ELD, a record! They are spread out over seven technical sessions and the poster session.
On Sunday, there are two workshops sponsored or co-sponsored by ELD. At last count, 15 faculty and librarians were signed up for the morning workshop and 16 for the afternoon. There is still time to register on-site for either or both workshops. Fill out the fax registration form found online and bring it to the registration desk at the conference. Unfortunately, you will have to pay the on-site rate.
Our Directors, Linda Whang and Nancy Linden have been working hard on the Monday night Welcome Reception (at the McKinney Engineering Library at UT-Austin) and the Tuesday Night Annual Banquet (at the historic Driskill Hotel).
ELD thanks all the sponsors who help make the program possible. In addition to Knovel, Institute of Physics Publishing, IEEE, IET/Inspec, Morgan & Claypool, Ei/Elsevier, and ProQuest, ELD may be getting another sponsor this year.
Bob Heyer-Gray will be soliciting your ideas for ASEE 2010 in Louisville. Please take the time to let him know what topics you would like to see covered.
