I usually put together a list of meetings and programs that may be of
interest to feminists and their friends for ALA Conferences.  This year I
ran out of time so here is a quick list.

*Feminist Task Force*

This is a quick list of meetings and programs that may be of interest to

*Friday, June 24 *

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM – Feminist Task Force (SRRT) - HYATT Regency Orlando,
Bayhill 21

Regular business meeting (Notes from ALA 2016 Midwinter
http://ftfinfo.wikispaces.com/Minutes }



                *Saturday, June 25*

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM  –  Introduction to Women's Issues in ALA Discussion
Group - HILTON Orlando, Clear Lake



We will introduce people to ACRL WGSS, COSWL, GLBTRT, and the LLAMA Women
Administrator’s Discussion group and talk for a few minutes about what each
group is doing.

Some of the topics mentioned at Midwinter: women and gaming in libraries,
graphic novels by women, etc. but we seemed to settle on something based on
telling stories about your workplace and maybe narrow this down to how to
negotiate in your library setting.  This can be negotiating all kinds of
things and maybe how this is different for women than men.

8:30 AM - 10:00 AM  –  Discussion Forum (ACRL WGSS) - HILTON Orlando, Lake

The focus of the discussion will be on the development of discipline
specific Frameworks. This discussion forum will give our section's
instruction committee to talk about their work on creating frames for women
and gender studies programs.



The panel will consist of TaraBaillargeon chair of the WGSS instruction
committee, and Joyce Garczynski, chair of EBSS communication studies
committee will discuss their work in developing discipline specific frames.
Jeanne Davidson, chair of the Information Literacy Framework and Standards
Committee, and Sharon Mader, ACRL visiting program officer for information
literacy will round out the panel of presenters. I also asked the sections
who have discipline specific standards to participate/attend and for
someone from Student Learning and Information Literacy committee to also
attend the forum. It should be a good discussion and I am hoping it is well
attended.

Memorial Prize winner Sarah S. Kortemeier about her winning essay, “I'll
Drown My Book: Visibility, Gender, and Classification in The University of
Arizona Poetry Center Library.” The essay concerns the persistent gender
imbalance in literary publishing. Kortemeier writes that she “seek[s] to
highlight and amplify the voices of female poets in the holdings of a
single library by enhancing subject analysis in cataloging practices and
creating a shelf marking system for anthologies that focus on women's
writing.” The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and discussion.
