Join Us! AVSL Annual Fall Meeting:

October 11-13, 2017, Chicago Illinois

Call for Submissions – Open

Anyone that has topics or presentations to add to the agenda, please contact  Leslie Holland (lholland@sco.edu) or Dede Rios (dmrios1@uiwtx.edu). We’d love to hear about projects, initiatives, or any speakers that our members recommend.




Registration for the AVSL meeting will be sent to the AVSL email listserv via ASCO during the 1st or 2nd week of August 2017. You must notify Leslie Holland (lholland@sco.edu) or Dede Rios (dmrios1@uiwtx.edu) if you are from a non-ASCO institution and are thinking of attending so we can have you added to the list for notification of registration.

Cost will be approximately $200. This is a very loose estimate at this point.

Do I need to register for the Academy 2017?

  • you are presenting a poster, teaching a workshop, etc.,
  • you would like to go to any of the Academy meetings. There is a category Other (Administrator/Librarian/etc. Non-OD Only, No CE Reported) for librarians attending Academy and the cost is $125-150 depending on time of registration.
