Kathy and Kyle at the ASU Free-Learning Conference

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 13:58:43 +0000

On Friday, July 21, Kathy and I traveled to Boone to attend the 2017 AppState Free-Learning Conference, hosted by App State’s Center for Academic Excellence. This free one-day conference places special emphasis on educational technology and e-learning, and we each came away with some new and exciting ideas. Here are some main themes and our […]

Thomas @ ALA Annual 2017

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 20:24:11 +0000

Let’s see, how many Chicago conferences is this now? There was the one with the blizzard, and the other one with the even bigger blizzard; the Midwinter when it was just rainy and foggy; the Annual when it was just rainy and foggy; the summer it was ridiculously hot; the time I had a 101 […]

My first visit to Chicago was 40 years ago on an excursion with the University of Michigan-Flint History Club.  I was a student in Ann Arbor but my friend talked them into taking me along.  My friend and I often found ourselves referring to a tourist map trying to figure out the “L” and getting […]

Kaeley at ATLA 2017

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 16:57:58 +0000

The 2017 edition of the American Theological Library Conference was held in Atlanta, June 14-17.  In addition to attending conference sessions and reconnecting with colleagues from across the US, I had two official roles this year.  I ended my term as Secretary of the Public Services Interest Group by taking minutes of our panel session, […]

Who doesn’t like Chicago? Everyone likes Chicago. In order to not like Chicago, you have to not like cities. Which is valid. I like Chicago, inasmuch as I like cities. I have family in Chicago. During an epic Greek meal on Sunday night I learned that one of my favorite cousins is pregnant. I am […]

Archives Leadership Institute 2017

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 14:57:46 +0000

After RBMS, I headed on to Berea, Kentucky. As a Steering Committee member, I again participated in the Archives Leadership Institute (ALI), now based at Berea College. Funded by the National Historical Publications & Records Commission (NHPRC), the goal for the Institute is to “bring to tomorrow’s leaders the insights and understanding necessary for increasing […]

Carolyn at ALA Annual 2017

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 18:46:21 +0000

Traveling to Chicago on Friday morning for ALA Annual 2017 began with a flight delay and then a cancellation altogether. Fortunately I, along with Susan Smith, was able to rebook my flight for later that evening, but like Steve, I, too, missed the Technical Services Quarterly editorial board dinner meeting. Attending committee meetings and taking […]

Rare Books and Manuscripts Section (RBMS/ALA) Annual Meeting

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 18:42:53 +0000

There were times where I wondered if I was completely sane in driving cross-country to attend the RBMS meeting in Iowa City, but I am ever so glad I did. The theme was “The Stories We Tell” as both practice and metaphor in special collections work. RBMS began with a plenary from Micaela Blei, the […]

Kathy S. @ ALA Chicago

Wed, 05 Jul 2017 14:00:55 +0000

This ALA marked by first time back in Chicago since my very FIRST ALA, back in 2009! Although I did not get to explore the city as much as I might have liked, I had a great time at the conference re-connecting with colleagues from around the country and, of course, learning a few things along […]

Steve at ALA Annual 2017

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 20:11:34 +0000

My 2017 ALA Annual Conference experience got off to a bit of a bumpy start, because my flight was delayed about  two hours and I wound up missing a dinner meeting with the editorial board of Technical Services Quarterly. But overall, it was more productive and enjoyable than my 2017 Midwinter experience, much of which […]
