TSRT activities

Okay, so I'm not very good at posting news. It's not that I don't think about all of you frequently.

We've got quite a bit going on right now with TSRT. We're planning our spring meeting for Friday, April 25, in Aurora, although it looks as though we won't have a lot of papers; only three submissions so far. This means that they will probably be one after the other, rather than having to chose. Frankly, I would rather be able to go hear all of them. Watch for the registration form, coming out in early March. I know it's a busy time, but this is the best date we were able to work out. There is still time to submit a paper, so just let me know.

One of the matters we will look at during the business meeting in Aurora will be By-laws changes. Jan Boyer has been working hard on these. One change will be the removal of the Treasurer's position, as we will let the NLA treasurer handle the record keeping and check writing. I found it interesting that other sections/round tables didn't move on this until TSRT announced its decision. We're such leaders!

Your board is excited about fall conference as well. We have several papers being done, PLUS, for the first time ever, TSRT is sponsoring a pre-conference. We will have Dr. Sidney Berger ("Please, call me Sid.") presenting his workshop on how to value books. This is the same one that he presents at the University of Illinoise-Urbana-Champaign Graduate School of Library and Information Science, and it's going to be an exciting day. Unfortunately, we're going to have to limit attendance to 40. So far we have received funding from McGoogan Library, which will cover his speaking fee, and we are waiting to hear about other grant submissions.

If you would like to present at this fall's conference, your program proposal needs to be in pretty soon.

We're also looking for candidates for office. This year we have two openings, Vice Chair/Chair Elect, and Secretary. If you'd like to volunteer, let me know. We are looking for individuals who are excited about the group, and willing to serve.

That's about all for TSRT right now. On a personal note, I have a new grandson, Dominic Jeremiah, born February 12. He's absolutely adorable (show me the baby who isn't), and much loved by his sister, Skyler.
