Been awhile

Saw an article on - Web 2.0? Not So Fast -- Say Hello to Web 1.9 (If That) by Simon Dumenco - & thought of my fellow 753ers. You may have to register.

Another faculty candidate presentation

The presentation is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday, March 26 in Crown 310A. GSLIS students are encouraged to attend.

CALL offers 10 membership grants to GSLIS students

Chicago Area Law Librarians, the Chicago chapter of AALL, hosted several GSLIS students from Dominican and UIUC Thursday for its monthly business meeting and lunch. Cornell Winston, law librarian at the Los Angeles U.S. attorney's office, spoke about the importance of being active in the association and in the profession of law librarianship. And CALL is offering GSLIS students a chance to do just that by inviting GSLIS students to apply for grants that will pay for a membership to AALL and CALL for 2007-2008. There are 10 membership grants available and the deadline is May 1. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

A representative from CALL is scheduled to attend LISSA's 2nd annual Association Night at 4:15 p.m. Wednesday, March 28 in Crown 340.

Here's my site for my LIS 753 final project. I created it for news interns at no particular paper in Chicago. I've had a blast learning to be Web authors with you. All the best!
