Dear Librarian,

I would like to invite you to attend an informal review and discussion of the results of the Knowledge Unlatched Pilot Project at the American Library Association meeting in Las Vegas. Please feel free to share this invitation or bring a colleague with you.  We are looking forward to an engaging conversation among librarians and publishers.

This event will take place in Ballroom E at the Las Vegas Hotel, just minutes from the conference center, from 7:00 - 8:30 PM on Friday the 27th of June.

We've been delighted by the support for the KU concept, and there is work to do in the future to make sure that the needs of all stakeholders are met. Your input would be greatly valued.

Please RSVP by June 10, 2014 at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KUatALA  so that we can finalize plans for the event.

The Summary Report of the Pilot Project is available here:


A more comprehensive analysis will be published in a few months' time.

I very much hope you can join me and my colleagues at ALA.

Kind Regards,

Frances Pinter
Executive Director, Knowledge Unlatched
