Thank you, Barbara Kingsolver!
Save the date!! We’re on our way to planning next year’s Spring Workshop in Greeley.
The 2008 workshop was very successful. There were many wonderful and informative sessions to choose from. Some attendees said they had a difficult time deciding which session to attend.
CLiC offered scholarships to several attendees; I’m sure many of you saw my emails.

Looking for a summertime read! Check out the eclectic reading tastes of the CLiC staff. We’re using Shelfari so you can see another web 2.0 tool in action as well.
I am attending the ARLIS/ NA, Art Libraries Society of North America, 36th Annual Conference in Denver. I wasn’t familiar with this library society before my friend Tom Riedel, Distance Services Librarian at Regis University, advertised the conference on various email discussion lists. Tom and Peggy Keenan, are Local Arrangements Co-chairs. After chatting with Tom, I knew that I wouldn’t want to miss this chance to attend. I’ve met some fabulous librarians from all over the United States and Canada.
I’ve attended a variety of activities but I’d like to mention a couple.
Patricia Limerick, Faculty Director and Chair of the Board of the Center of the American West and Professor of History at the University of Colorado spoke at the Convocation and Awards Ceremony Friday night. Her talk was charming and funny. If you have an opportunity to hear her speak, don’t miss it.
The “New Voices in the Profession” session was a showcase of exceptional academic work by students and new professionals (under 5 years post MLS.) The speakers and their topics:
Tracy Bergstrom, Notre Dame University
A Content Analysis of Visual Resources Collection Websites
Patrick Tomlin, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Art Library 2.0: What Does it Mean to Be a New Art Librarian in the Digital Age?
Jenica Baty, Tiffany Chao, Jill Zawacki, University of Michigan Assessment of an Archive: Photographs from Taipei
