THE DAY
********************************
The Annual Librarians Day will be offered at the Federation of Genealogical Societies/New England Historic Genealogical Society Conference on Wednesday, August 30, 2006. Please join us for presentations by "front line" staff that will help enrich genealogy patron contact. This day is for library staff members to come and learn, network, and meet others serving genealogy patrons. Sponsored by ProQuest, the day will include a buffet luncheon for those attending.

The Day will take place at the Sheraton Boston Hotel, which is the conference host hotel. A full schedule for the day follows below. Pre-registration is required.
