During April 2014

Spring 2014 ASERL Meeting

The Spring meeting of ASERL (Association of Southeastern Research Libraries) was in Tampa, FL on April 23-24. After the long, hard winter, we were all glad to get to the warm weather in Tampa, even if it was on the river, not the ocean. This was my last meeting as President, so I presided over... more

Sarah at a National Library of Medicine Course

As a Research and Instruction Librarian for Science, my role in instruction and liaison work has evolved into the bioinformatics domain in order to meet the needs of science students at the undergraduate and graduate level.

Lynn’s version of CNI in St. Louis

2014 ER&L virtual conference

For the second year running, I “attended” the Electronic Resources & Libraries conference by watching streamed sessions. I still plan on watching sessions as time permits throughout the year, since the group purchase that Derrik made runs until the next conference is held in 2015. (ZSR folks: Ask Derrik if you need the password.) One... more

I had never attended CNI in the past, but was pleased to discover how much overlap there is with the Digital Library Federation (DLF), the community that I consider to be... more

SNCA Meeting, Raleigh (NC) by Tanya

While I had some challenges making it to the SNCA meeting on April 8 (a sprained ankle necessitated some crutches), the opportunity for networking and hearing about all the ongoing archives projects in NC, was well worth the trip! I moderated a session focusing on the Digital Public Library (including Chelcie) and was interested to... more

SNCA, Secrest, and a New Finding Aid!

On Monday, Vicki Johnson and I presented at the Society of North Carolina Archivists (SNCA) Conference on the Secrest Artists Series. Our theme, like that of the SNCA conference, was on community engagement and connections. We used the Secrest Artists Series, and the archival collection for the series, as an example of holdings in Special... more

The Winter Institute for Intercultural Communication

Thanks to a scholarship from the University I was able to spend March 12- 15 in Charlotte attending the Inaugural Winter Institute for Cultural Communication sponsored by the Institute and the Wake Forest Office of Diversity & Inclusion. It was a great gathering of about 80 attendees; thirty of which were from WFU. The Institute... more
