Workshop participants will learn 1) how to recruit celebrity champions and local heroes to promote your library; 2) how to leverage library champions, build a donor database and raise big money for your library; 3) how to build a donor development strategy for everyone in your library; and 4) the essential publications your library must produce to secure funders.

Zines in Libraries: Collecting, Cataloging, and Community [$] Affiliate Event, Ticketed event Anaheim Convention Center
211B
Description :

Zines offer a unique way for libraries to expand their print collections and connect with their communities in a time when so much of our work is going digital. Handmade publications that can cover any subject, many zines represent perspectives rarely covered in other print media. Their celebration of print culture may seem anachronistic, but zines offer a range of programming opportunities for youth and adults alike.

Participants in the workshop will learn from librarians who have brought zines into their collections, as well as those who have used zines for programming and outreach even before building collections. Topics include what zines are, the history of zines, how libraries are incorporating them, and ways that they are being used to connect with community. You will leave with ideas for getting started with zines in your institution, no matter your budget or institutional culture.

ALA / Proquest Scholarship Bash [$] Social event, Ticketed event Anaheim Convention Center
Ballroom A-E
Description :

Rock Bottom Remainders announces that Anaheim will be their last ever concert

The Rock Bottom Remainders band has announced that the concert at ALA Annual Conference, part of their “Past Our Bedtime” tour, will be their last ever. This news was released with the sad news that their founder Kathi Kamen Goldmark (who was to have performed with them at ALA) passed away in late May. It is a special honor for ALA to host this landmark event.
“By day, they’re authors. Really famous authors. But once a year they shed their pen- and-pencil clutching personas and become rock stars, complete with roadies, groupies and a wicked cool tour bus.” The ALA/ProQuest Scholarship Bash proudly welcomes the Rock Bottom Remainders for this special last-ever performance at 2012 ALA Annual Conference on Saturday, June 23, 8:00pm in the Anaheim Convention Center Arena.
The Rock Bottom Remainders band has included some of today's most shining literary lights. Among them, they've published more than 150 titles, sold more than 150 million books, and been translated into more than 25 languages. Scheduled to appear now at the ALA/ProQuest Scholarship Bash are Stephen King, Amy Tan, Mitch Albom, Dave Barry, Matt Groening, Scott Turow, Ridley Pearson, Greg Iles, James McBride, Roy Blount, Jr., and Sam Barry. Roger McGuinn of The Byrds joins the band as special musical guest.
Of the upcoming ALA concert, Dave Barry, co-lead guitarist says, “We love the ALA, and we love librarians. We love them so much that, for this performance, we're going to try to actually learn the songs before we play them.”
The group, founded by Goldmark, first appeared at the 1992 American Booksellers Association convention in Anaheim. Hailed by critics as having “one of the world’s highest ratios of noise to talent,” the Remainders have no music videos and no record contracts, but do have around 160,000 hits on Google. They have one original song, “Proofreading Woman,” and have generally performed covers of favorite songs—you can find videos on YouTube.
The money raised from this year's Bash will provide scholarships for graduate students in library and information studies, including Spectrum. Tickets are $25 (nonrefundable) and are going fast. You must register for the conference (or log in if you have already registered) in order to purchase tickets.
