Tickets to the 2011 BEA Available for FREE for Pace Students

BEABookExpo America is the largest annual book trade fair in the United States. Nearly all significant book publishers in the United States, and many from abroad, have booths and exhibits at BEA, and use the fair as an opportunity to showcase upcoming titles, sell current books, socialize with colleagues from other publishing houses, and sell and buy subsidiary rights and international rights. Authors, librarians, and buyers for book retailers also attend the event.

This year, the BEA will be on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, the 24th through the 26th.

Pace university students will have the opportunity to attend via a limited supply of 3-day passes so students can come and go at their leisure. However, students need to let us know if they are interested in attending in the morning or afternoon and on which days since you may have to hand off your badge to another student.

Please let us know if you are interested in Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, and whether you are interested in attending in the morning or afternoon.

Please email with this information.

Google and the Future of Search: Is the Party Ending?

Google has become synonymous with search. Over the years, others have tried, but Google’s seemingly magic algorithms, entrepreneurial culture and advertising model have cemented its reputation as the leader in the field. But is all of that changing? With the emergence of Facebook and other social media sites, people are turning to their friends and networks for recommendations, ideas and solutions. Is the so-called science of “social search” displacing the mathematics as the holy grail of search technology?

This panel will examine the changing nature of search as agencies, individuals and institutions search for the next big thing. Today’s event is tied to the April publication of Steven Levy’s book, “In the Plex.”
