  • 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.

Presenting the first NJSLA Cookbook!

To commemorate our 2020 Virtual Holiday Party and Annual Business Meeting, members were asked to submit their favorite holiday recipes. Please enjoy the first annual NJSLA Cookbook! We’re distributing this now for those who would like to try recipes over the holidays.

Don’t hesitate to send recipes to Emma Moore (emoore@ias.edu) to grow our cookbook! Kudos to Emma for coordinating this  special effort.

Wishing you all a healthy and happy holiday season as we gladly close the books on 2020.
