Call for presentations - COSA 2018

COSA 2018 needs YOU!
 
Have you done something interesting in your library with your SirsiDynix software? Have you found a creative way around a problem, or tried something that worked really well? Have your patrons responded positively to a development in your library processes, your website or your catalogue? Do you have something else related to brag about? Then join us in Adelaide this 24-25th October, 2018 and get a discount on registration fee when you tell us about it!
 
The COSA Committee is looking for presentations from libraries using SirsiDynix products, but remember: you don't have to present by yourself. Think you can't talk for a full session? Partner with another librarian/library or even a vendor you worked with on the project, and talk for half as long! Sessions are usually only 30 mins long.
 
This year, we're also looking to hear from people who use Google Analytics, or have System Administration Tips and Tricks to share. Please let the Committee know if you are prepared to join in with any of these topics or something completely different, so we can plan the program.
