Steve at North Carolina Serials Conference

On Friday, March 31, Chris and I, along with the delightful Jane Malliett from Winston-Salem State, went to the North Carolina Serials Conference in Chapel Hill. The conference was good, and there were several interesting sessions, but I’m going to focus on only one, because it was kind of complicated. Jacob Shelby of NC State... more

Leslie at MLA 2017

It’s been clear for some time now that the Music Library Association has outgrown the traditional members-take-turns-hosting-the-annual-meeting system; so this year, for the first time, we engaged an event-planning firm, who seems to have taken their cue from ALA, because we fetched up in Orlando.
