    Thanks for the encouragement, Jill.

    I would like to point out that there are some experienced, winning librarians at NDU who did a great poster for the virtual SLA 2020.  Anybody who wants to help with production should check out their poster.  

    And somebody please post that great poster, please!  It should be in the MLC Archives!   We were proud of you two!

         Sharon
