1. Drop by and pick up how-to literature, as well as educational bookmarks and "incentive" pins, to share with your colleagues, students, and library users.
2. Leave a business card and have a chat after MLA; the virtual clinic comes to you at no charge!
3. Chat with presenter Pat Wagner on what people are talking about regarding online education, as well as network with colleagues.
