Looking Forward, Looking Back:
Reflections on the Past and Planning for the Future
Substance Abuse Librarians & Information Specialists
36th Annual Conference
April 29 - May 2, 2014
New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA
Substance Abuse Librarians and Information Specialists (SALIS) last gathered in New Brunswick, NJ for a conference in 1985. Now, 29 years later, SALIS members and other interested information professionals are invited back again for the 36th Annual SALIS Conference, hosted by the Center of Alcohol Studies (CAS) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.
Our theme this year, Looking Forward, Looking Back: Reflections on the Past and Planning for the Future, aims to review past successes and best practices in documenting and disseminating addiction research, as well as to explore opportunities to translate them into our information age.
A few speakers have been tentatively named:
Robert Pandina, PhD, CAS Director, Rutgers
Gail Milgram, ED, former Director of the Summer School of Alcohol Studies, Rutgers
Michael Lesk, PhD, Professor, School of Communication and Information
Registration will open in early 2014; the fee will include lunch during the three days of the conference.
The conference will be held at the Heldrich Hotel in downtown New Brunswick. For single or double occupancy, the SALIS Conference rate is $139 + tax, which includes breakfast.
More information, and the call for abstracts, coming soon!
