Hu at FYE 2018

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 18:49:25 +0000

While there have been 37 First-Year Experience Conferences, this is only my fourth. My first FYE conference was in 2008, and I try to attend this annual conference as often as possible! The focus on first-year students draws together faculty and staff from across the academy. While it’s great to hear presentations on library-related topics […]

MBL@ALAMW18in Denver

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 17:17:06 +0000

ALA Midwinter 18 in Denver commenced just as a debilitating snowstorm was moving across the northern tier of states. While the storm didn’t impact our travel, (I was travelling with Susan and our path took us from GSO to Charlotte to Denver) it did have a significant impact to how I spent my time this […]

On Thursday, February 8, it was my privilege to attend Global Wake Forest’s 10th Annual WISE Conference held at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Winston Salem. There were 275 attendees from 26 states and 6 countries. The purpose of this conference was to help faculty leaders, program coordinators, and administrators develop the knowledge and skills […]

Leslie at MLA 2018

Thu, 08 Feb 2018 00:20:14 +0000

This year’s meeting of  the Music Library Association was held in Portland, Oregon. A very busy conference for me, between session attendance and committee duties. Cataloging The Music OCLC Users Group (MOUG), which holds its annual meeting as a pre-conference to MLA, celebrated its 40th anniversary this year. We received updates on cataloging standards and […]

The North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (NCICU) Library directors met at Guildford College on Dec. 19th. For private college and university libraries, NCICU is the organization through which we negotiate our participation in NC Live. NCICU also plays an important role in advocating for private colleges and universities and helps us lobby the NC […]

Thomas in Denver/DC for LITA/CNI

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 20:14:38 +0000

A couple of weeks ago, I flew out to Denver for LITA Forum. By the way, the options for flying from Charlotte (major American Airlines hub) to Denver (major United hub) are pretty meager, so if you want to know what Highway 52 is like at 4:45am, I can tell you! As a recent LITA […]

Both workshops were sponsored by the NC State Library, part of the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. On Monday, December 4th, I taught book repair to 12 participants at the Patrick Beaver Public […]

The week after Thanksgiving, I was invited to speak at the International Council on Archives annual meeting in Mexico City, held jointly with the Asociación Latinoamericana de Archivos. The conference sessions were interesting (conducted in English, Spanish, and French with translation), and Mexico City was a fascinating and noisy mix of 22 million people, their […]

ASERL in Miami

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 14:04:29 +0000

Last week I was able to spend several days in beautiful Miami for the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries fall meeting. The city is still recovering from hurricane damage, although things looked surprising good with most services in place. While I still consider myself a “new dean,” I co-hosted a dinner for new deans to […]
