    I am a member of the University of Illinois chapter of the Special Library Association. We are entering our 50th anniversary on the UIUC campus and we have been planning an anniversary event in December to celebrate that milestone. To account for the busyness that December/finals will bring and to foster participation from our sizeable LEEP program, we are looking to create an asynchronous celebration that will go live during the week of December 5th-9th. One of the components of that event is to have a series of videos that highlights different special libraries, and we were wondering if you, as an alum of the program, would be interested in participating? <o:p></o:p>

    To participate, we ask that you create a 5-10 minute video about the library you work at, sharing unique aspects about that specific kind of librarianship. If you are interested, I can send you a series of prompts to help guide you as needed, along with some accessibility guidelines to follow. You can either record this video on your own, or myself or another SLA member can assist you. <o:p></o:p>

    We are hoping to have the videos submitted to us by Friday, December 2nd, so that we can have those uploaded by the 5th. We will also remove these videos by the end of the semester to maintain confidentiality. If you could let me know if you are interested in participating by this Friday, November 18th, that would be great, and I can send along details and prompts for the videos.<o:p></o:p>

    Please let me know if you have any questions. You can contact me at Thank you very much for your time! <o:p></o:p>

    Best, <o:p></o:p>
