Welcome to the March 2011 SLIS Descriptor!

Kick off your spring break with an all-new issue of SLIS Descriptor!

Are you anxious about upcoming annual conferences? Interested in exploring LIS careers? Do you need a break from all your academic reading? This issue has something for you:

  • Jamie Renton fills us in on some exciting ALASC news on “An Update from our ALASC Chair.” Catch up on a recording of “Making the Most of Your ALASC Membership” and do some shopping at the newly updated Cafe Press Store.
  • R. Schuyler Selden offers an artistic glimpse into the world of an SJSU Special Collections employee through a collection of work-inspired Poetry.

 New SLIS social networks are now available in Canada and the United States East Coast! Please visit SLIS Networks page to find out more. If you don’t see a group for your region, start one and e-mail the editor to have it included.
