GOT ELECTIONS? INFORMING THE PUBLIC
ACRL-LPSS/GODORT Preconference THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 8:30-5:30
Event Code: GO1
Are you as knowledgeable about elections as you wish to be? Most librarians
and instructors admit: we are in dire need of training to better assist
students and library users with elections questions. Does the
caucus-to-convention cycle leave you scratching your head? You're in
excellent company! Do elections energize and excite you? Better yet!
Join us for a lively full-day workshop with nationally recognized speakers,
and learn Who Decides? (Information on Voters), Who Runs? (Information on
Candidates), Who Cares? (Information on Issues), and Who Wins? (Information
on Election Results).
Speakers: Rhodes Cook (RhodesCook.com, longtime editor of America Votes),
Adelaide Elm Kimball (Project Vote Smart & Follow the Money.org), Kay Bruce
(League of Women Voters), Kris Kasianovitz (UCLA), Stephen Woods (Penn
State), Chris Palazzolo (Emory), John Hernandez (Princeton), Erik Estep
(East Carolina University), Herbert Chihak (Pepperdine School of Law) and
Sponsored by CQ Press, Readex and LexisNexis, this vital training
opportunity occurs on Thursday, June 26, from 8:30am to 5:30pm at the Pollak
Library, California State University, Fullerton. Refreshments, lunch, and
transportation to & from the Anaheim Convention Center included in
registration fee. Learn more at the GODORT News page at
