Roz at Charleston Conference

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 14:37:49 +0000

This was my first Charleston Conference and I was there because I was on panel but I have to admit that I loved it. The format of the conference is different than most and I found the sessions I attended to be deep dives into really complex and interesting topics. I was surprised at the […]

Over the last three days, I was immersed in a 20-credit MLA continuing education course on systematic reviews at the University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library with 26 other medical librarians and academic librarians from the West coast to the East coast. Although at first glance it may seem that the work of medical librarians […]

Theme 1: Books Arizona State will soon close its main library for two years for a massive renovation. During this time, practically all of their books will be in storage. Once they’re done, they can put about 375K books in open stacks while most of the rest of their 4 million books will remain in […]

NCPC Annual Conference Nov. 13, 2017 I was anxious to attend the North Carolina Preservation Consortium conference this year for several reasons: seeing my colleagues and firming up teaching commitments, as well as wishing outgoing Executive Director, Robert James well. The conference was held at The McKimmon Conference and Training Center of NC State University.The […]

Better late than never is what I always say, so here are a few comments from my experiences at the recent NCLA conference….. My primary assignment was to team up with Dean Tim Pyatt and our architect, Chris Garris, to give a presentation on creating a library master plan. Tim already covered this in his […]

I’ve missed a couple of recent NCLA conferences, but it was nice to pick up again in an attractive, renovated conference venue right here in Winston-Salem. (I’ve been told that the large wood panels came from old barns around the state—an example of showcasing North Carolina’s heritage.)  I was part of a session chaired by […]

Kyle at NCLA 2017

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 19:37:36 +0000

This being my first “real” NCLA (I presented once in 2013, but didn’t stick around), I wasn’t sure what to expect. As others have mentioned, though, I found that this conference was a great opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues I don’t get to see often enough, especially those in the public library world. […]

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 18:06:28 +0000

It was great to have the 62nd NCLA Biennial Conference back in Winston-Salem last week!  For this conference, I served behind the scenes on the conference’s Planning Committee, specifically with the Local Arrangements Committee.  There were several ZSR connections on this committee as well:  one of the co-chairs was one of my former student assistants, […]

Kathy S. at NCLA

While I’ve been attending NCLA for 10 years now (!) and have been involved on previous conference committees, this was my first year serving as a member of the conference programming committee (chaired by our very own Mary Scanlon). This meant my conference this year was less about my own presentations and more about trying […]
