First Human Library Event @ ZSR

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 18:32:28 +0000

On Thursday, September 21st, the ZSR Library hosted our first Human Library event! The event was small but successful, with five books and seven readers. Since the Human Library focuses on dialogue across difference, it was both a great way to acknowledge International Day of Peace, and serve as practice for our next Human Library […]

Due to the update of the ACS-approval guidelines of chemical literature instruction and launch of the new Biochemistry & Molecular Biology program, I took an early morning flight on Sunday Aug. 20th to National Airport and was immersed in 21 chemical information and chemistry education sessions over 4 days at the ACS National Meeting in […]

Rebecca at SAA 2017

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 19:32:25 +0000

To echo Stephanie and Tanya, SAA was in Portland, Oregon last week, and I too made the trek west. I did not make it to SAA last year, so it has been a while since I attended SAA. To add to the excitement, I brought along my husband and my one year old! We spent […]

TALA Information Literacy, Instruction, & Assessment Meeting

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 18:16:12 +0000

On Friday, August 7th, TALA held an assessment meeting sponsored by Guilford College. This was the perfect time of year to re-focus on assessment, so five librarians from ZSR took advantage of the opportunity to hear campus updates, hear colleagues from  GTCC, UNCG, NC A&T, Guilford and Elon give lightning talks on recent projects, and […]

Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 13:24:42 +0000

I recently returned from the week-long meeting of the Society of American Archivists meeting in Portland, Oregon. As Stephanie recently noted, this was not only our largest West Coast meeting, it was our 2nd highest attended meeting ever. All in all, it was a busy week in beautiful Oregon. The majority of my time was […]

SB at SAA 2017

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 18:38:08 +0000

The Society of American Archivists’ annual meeting has come and gone! This year’s meeting was different from past meetings: it was held in a mid-tier market, Portland, Oregon, as opposed to a huge one (last year was Atlanta, next year is DC); it was also the second-largest meeting in SAA history, with a bit over […]

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 […]

Ellen M. at ALA Annual 2017

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 19:56:48 +0000

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 […]

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, […]
