Auditorium Speaker Series featuring Sonia Manzano Speaker Series Moscone Convention Center
Esplanade 305
Description :

One of America’s “most influential Hispanics” according to People en Español, Sonia Manzano—best known as the Emmy Award–winning actor who defined the role of Maria on Sesame Street—has won fifteen Emmy Awards for her television writing and was twice nominated for an Emmy Award as best performer in a children’s series. She is the author of the Pura Belpré Honor Book, The Revolution of Evelyn Serrano, which was a Kirkus Reviews Best Children’s Book of 2012 and hailed in a starred review in Booklist as a “wry . . . moving” novel. Manzano has also been recognized by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in Washington, D.C.
Becoming Maria, Manzano’s latest book, is her coming-of-age memoir, the remarkable story of a girl plunged into a world she never expected. It’s the story of dreams—some of them nightmares, others visions of romance and escape. Set in the Bronx in the 1950s, it’s the tale of a family that is loving and troubled, and of the child who grew up to become a TV star. Sonia’s creative drive keeps her afloat despite the turbulence of her life and times—including the cramped, colorful world of her Latino neighborhood and an abusive and alcoholic father. Spiced with Nuyorican culture, heartache, and humor, the memoir paints a revealing portrait of a girl’s resilience as she grows up to become an inspiration to millions.

Description :

We asked for your feedback, and we got it! ALA is influential and great for networking -- but we can also be too complex, sometimes bureaucratic, and we send a lot of email. Well, we heard you loud and clear, and we are working on it. Help us stay on track. Through a series of “kitchen table conversations” at the 2015 Annual Conference, attendees will gather to dig deeper into the ALA member experience. Topics may include joining and renewing, reducing email “chatter,” and making sure you get the information that matters most to you. You do the talking; we’ll be there to listen, learn, and then act. Please participate in the conversation and help us shape a new ALA together.

To observe the 40th anniversary of the ISSN Network, in addition to update reports from CONSER and CC:DA, this forum will feature three presentations to shed light on different ways ISSN facilitates the resource discovery. Agenda is as follows:

2. CONSER report / Les Hawkins (CONSER Coordinator at Library of Congress)
3. CC:DA report / Adolfo Tarango (Assistant Director, Metadata Services at University of California in San Diego)
4. ISSN Program

Regina Reynolds (Director, U.S. ISSN Center and Head, ISSN Section at Library of Congress)
Since its inception more than 40 years ago, ISSN has become a crucial identifier in the chain of trade, a key for serials processing, essential for access to journals and their articles, an identifier used by the US Postal Service and by rights management agencies, and much more. This presentation will review the history of the U.S. ISSN Center, the evolution of the ISSN standard, current uses and issues regarding ISSN, and ISSN’s potential in the linked data environment.

Steve Shadle (Serials Access Librarian at University of Washington)
It is not uncommon for publishers and contact providers to only provide current title and ISSN (rather than an entire journal title history) to knowledge base providers. This discussion will provide an overview of how two knowledge bases (Serials Solutions and ExLibris Alma) manage this metadata and the resulting user display and access issues.

Diane Boehr (Head of the Cataloging and Metadata Management Section at National Library of Medicine)
NLM was one of the earliest supporters and users of the ISSN. This presentation looks at the history and current use of ISSN data in NLM’s indexing activities, as well as some local practices adopted to ensure quality data in our article citations.
