Nicholson to speak at ALA President's Connections Salon

Associate Professor Scott Nicholson, director of the M.S. in Library and Information Science program at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University, will be the featured guest in the December installment in the series of ALA President Jim Rettig's ALA
Connections Salons. The free informal online discussion with Nicholson, an avid expert on gaming in libraries, will be held online in ALA OPAL 100-seat online room. For more information, visit  

Nicholson is the chief scientist of the Library Game Lab of Syracuse. In addition to
gaming, his interests include the assessment of library services through data mining and participatory librarianship. Nicholson is also the host of the Board Games with Scott video series, the On Board Games podcast, and the Gaming in Libraries podcast.

Like European discussion salons, the ALA Connections Salon provides a relaxed environment (online, of course) where ALA members can participate in formal and informal discussions centered around a timely topic.
