We wanted to let you know that there will be several ARTstor activities at the upcoming ALA Midwinter meeting in Boston. We will be having our inaugural ARTstor Participants’ Meeting and all ARTstor participants are invited to attend. The meeting will be held on Sunday January 16, 2005 from 4:00-6:00pm in the Hynes Convention Center, room 100. If you plan to attend the Participants’ Meeting, please RSVP to userservices@artstor.org.

In addition to the Participants’ Meeting, all participants are invited to visit the ARTstor Hospitality Suite in the Marriott Copley Place. You can find us in the suite Saturday, January 15 thru Monday, January 17, from 10:00am to 6:00pm. [Note: the suite will not be open from 4:00-6:00pm on Sunday, January 16 because of the ARTstor Participants’ Meeting.] There will be signs or flyers available in the lobby at the concierge desk with the suite numbers. Representatives from our User Services and Library Relations team will be in the suite so there will be opportunities for training and learning more about ARTstor. The schedule each day will have a combination of training and drop-in times. During the training periods you are still welcome to come by with questions, but we cannot guarantee that a computer will be free for demos during those times.

The schedule each day will be:
10:00am-12:00pm: Training
12:00-2:00pm: Drop-in: Demos and Q & A
2:00pm-4:00pm: Training
4:00-6:00 pm: Drop-in: Demos and Q & A

We also encourage you to schedule an appointment to visit with us while you are in Boston. To schedule time to meet with ARTstor Library Relations and User Services staff please send an email to: subscribe@artstor.org.
