The Acquisitions Institute at Timberline Lodge

Saturday May 19 - Tuesday May 22, 2018; Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood, Oregon

REGISTRATION IS OPEN<http://acquisitionsinstitute.org/register-for-the-2018-acquisitions-institute/>

We're so excited to share our 2018 Program<http://acquisitionsinstitute.org/2018-program/> with you! We had what we think is a record number of proposals this year and from them have chosen a program we hope will both educate and inspire you. From a panel discussion between librarians and publishers on diversity, inclusion and equity in scholarly publishing and acquisitions, to the triumphs and tribulations of leading workplace culture change, to deciphering and visualizing data, there's a little something for everyone. Check out the program page for much more!

We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker this year is Thomas Padilla, Visiting Digital Research Services Librarian at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. He publishes, presents, and teaches widely on digital scholarship, digital collections, Humanities data, data curation, and data information literacy. In his talk, he will advance the argument that conditions of uncertainty and a speculative orientation to collections constitutes a disposition that empowers libraries and the communities they serve. As the poet a. maxwell reminds us, uncertainty is not the same as not knowing - uncertainty indicates the presence of alternatives. This talk is a call to embrace those alternatives.

About Timberline Lodge

The Timberline Lodge conference facility offers a relaxed atmosphere for librarians, vendors, and publishers to discuss issues of concern. Plan to come and listen to one another in this small conference (enrollment is limited to 85) with its rustic resort setting and the finest of people and conversations. Presenters are encouraged to engage the audience and there are plenty of opportunities for informal discussion outside the scheduled program. Plan to enjoy the good food, the beautiful mountain scenery, snow sports and swimming, and favorite readings.
