    Save the date for a virtual round table presentation of tales of professional victory, both small and large – on October 21, from 11:30 to 12:30 (ET) we will be hosting Solo Success Stories, and we would love to see you there.

    Attendees are welcome from all communities, but we are seeking Solo presenters to share recent accomplishments. We are looking for 5-10 minute presentations that can cover any aspect of being a solo info pro. Project management, vendor negotiations, complex research, technology implementation, virtual collaboration… the possibilities are endless, because Solos do it all.

  • Speakers Needed!

    Three SLA Communities (New Jersey; Leadership and Management Development; Pharmaceutical Health Technology) are organizing an event set for mid-October- to bring together our membership and reckon with the changes we all experienced (and are still experiencing) because of the COVID-19 Global Pandemic.

    The Programming Committees are looking for 3 speakers to talk about their experiences as librarians during the pandemic, and be part of an open Q&A with attendees. Tell your story!

    • Did your professional life change a lot, or a little?
    • How prepared was your organization?
    • What shock waves did it send through your industry?
    • Did you leave your job, or get a new one?
    • Have things gone back to "normal"? (Do you want them to?)

    If you are interested, please contact NJ Programming Chair- Emma Moore ( emoore@ias.edu ) by August 6th.
