ALA Midwinter Recap

In case you missed ALA MW (or were busy running from booth to booth) ABC-CLIO's Event Coordinator Mary Anne Knox and Senior Marketing Coordinator Elizabeth Millar share some of the highlights.

Here's to a Successful ALA Midwinter!

We had a sunny start to the New Year at ALA Midwinter in San Diego. The show floor was buzzing with librarians, vendors, mascots, and swag galore! Check out this short video of what you may have missed along with a sneak peek at our upcoming author vodcasts!


Ed Lott and Jim Slattery from our Sales Team were giving database demos every hour in our theater to show off our new and improved databases for schools and academic libraries. If you didn't get a chance to check them out, you can learn all about them on our website and even sign up for a FREE 60-day preview! One lucky winner who attended our ALA demos will receive a year subscription to FOUR databases of their choice!

Our ABC-CLIO booth displayed new releases from all of our imprints: ABC-CLIO/Greenwood, Praeger, and Libraries Unlimited/Linworth. Check out our website to get the latest info on our brand new titles!

You may have noticed that we were all wearing buttons that said, "Ask me about Inquiry and Information Literacy?" Did you ask? If not, we want to let you know that we have an established reputation for providing the best selection of publications from the best authors and scholars on Inquiry and Information Literacy. Check out this handout highlighting some of our key titles and authors that can help students in asking those focused and critically thought out questions. To support inquiry and information literacy, we also filmed vodcasts at the show of Library Media Connection's Gail Dickinson and well-known author Pam Berger providing their take on inquiry and how you can apply it in your library or classroom.

In addition, we also filmed vodcasts of Megan Honig speaking about the importance of Street Lit, Sharon Coatney on librarian leadership, Carol Doll on resilient libraries, and Jessica Moyer on integrated advisory. Stay tuned to our YouTube Channel, ABCCLIOLive, for more on these.

See you at ALA Annual in New Orleans!
