Califa Vendor Showcase

We recently told you about the Vendor Day on March 9 held by our partner consortium, SCELC (a consortium for academic libraries), at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

The following day, March 10, Califa will be hosting a select number of vendors at the MCLS office in Monrovia to present products and offers that specifically relate to public libraries, and particularly offers that are current for our members. You may RSVP for individual sessions, or for the entire day, but please note that space is very limited, and I can only accept the first ten RSVPs for each demo. Also, if you RSVP and are then unable to make the demo, please let us know so that someone else can take your place.

There is no cost to attend this Vendor Showcase, and both breakfast and lunch will be provided by Califa.

The schedule of the day will be:

9am - arrive, sign in, coffee/snacks
9:30 - HW Wilson will be discussing their new products for public libraries including the new Cinema Image Gallery.
10:30 - MyiLibrary will be demonstrating their new ipod-compatible eAudio product, and specifically discussing the Califa shared collection.
11:30 - Altarama will demonstrate RefTracker, DeskStats, and their new SMS Reference product
12:30 - LUNCH1:15 - SerialsSolutions will share an overview of their new developments and products
2:15 - ProQuest will share their new packages for public libraries.
(note: ProQuest demo is still to be confirmed).

The day will end at 3pm.

To RSVP, please send an email to specifying which demo you want to attend, or if you want to attend the entire day. After you RSVP an email will be sent to you with driving directions and parking information.

This is a great opportunity to meet with several popular, and new, vendors at one time, get your questions answered, and discuss the specifics of offers made to Califa members.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
