You’re not going to want to miss this year’s meeting! Here are some highlights:
Expand your network and meet new people! In order to facilitate conversation with your colleagues, we will be hosting themed networking tables. When you register, you may pick the topic of most interest to you and your work, and over lunch, we will seat you with other professionals from the area who share your interests.
Food this year will be catered by Lola’s in Poughkeepsie. Both a continental breakfast and a light lunch will be served.
After the meeting, don’t forget to stay for a tour of the Locust Grove Historic Estate. If you have time and the weather permits, you can also stroll the grounds and look at the beautiful gardens.
SENYRLC Member libraries who are switching to RDA are now eligible for discounted purchase of the RDA Toolkit by leveraging group licensing arranged by the NY3Rs Association. For libraries implementing or planning to implement RDA, the RDA toolkit is an essential resource for navigating from AACR2 to RDA. NY 3Rs Association is coordinating statewide purchases of the RDA Toolkit on behalf of our libraries.
If your library is interested in purchasing the toolkit, more information about the group purchase can be found on the NY3Rs website here. Registration from libraries who are willing to purchase the materials must be completed by May 24th. The discount will be finalized based on how many libraries sign up.
