A Sneak Peek of #BritannicaALA!

What are you looking forward to the most at the 2015 American Library Association: Midwinter Meeting in Chicago—hearing about the latest innovations and new technologies, networking, having some fun with colleagues? The excitement for ALA Midwinter is contagious at Britannica Digital Learning! Chicago is our hometown, so we have some great things in store at BOOTH #3117. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s planned!

Meet the Editors

It takes a team of experts, subject editors, fact-checkers, copy editors, and information architects to deliver Britannica’s trusted information worldwide. Stop by our booth and meet some of the great minds behind this thorough and meticulous process! It’s your chance to ask questions of the editors and learn more about a day in the life at Britannica.

Each week leading up to ALA Midwinter, we’ll use this blog to introduce one of the editors that will appear in our booth at ALA, so stay tuned. Watch Facebook and Twitter for a chance to pose questions to our editors in advance of the show.

Say Cheese!

This year’s Super Bowl is in Arizona, so if you can’t be there, we’ll bring the excitement of the game to you. Our “Super Britannica” Photo Booth (right inside our exhibit space) will be stocked with football props and paraphernalia to take some fun photos. Whether you want a picture with a Britannica editor or you’d rather photobomb your colleagues, we’ll capture the moment—sure to be a memorable one! Follow the fun on Facebook and Twitter.

Celebrating 20 Years Online

At the show, the Britannica staff will be decked out in football jerseys. Each jersey has the #20 on it, representing our 20th anniversary of being digital! We know—we don’t look a day over 18, right? Stop by and share your memories of Britannica then and now. We hope to see you there!
