Spring Meeting Musings

Another Spring Meeting has sped by. Angela and Laura have posted terrific reports of the meeting; thanks to both of them. It was a bit chaotic at times, but we're an adaptable bunch. There are a few outgrowths of the meeting that I'd like to comment on.

First, we're always looking for topics to consider for presentations, or for the theme of the meeting. Several excellent suggestions were included on the evaluation forms. As time goes on, I inevitably read of a meeting or presentation that sounds like something we could do, but I never have a place to send the suggestion. Now we have a place. Under the "Conferences" section to the right, you'll see a heading for "Suggest a program topic." Anyone with access to the TSRT blog is able to make an entry, and we encourage you to do so. If you are not yet a TSRT blogger, email Casey (casey.kralik@bellevue.edu) and she'll get you set up. UPDATE 2015 - please email one of the TSRT officers to submit suggestions. And share your expertise; if there is a topic related to something you do, we'd love to hear you present on it!

Secondly, we're also always looking for locations for the Spring Meeting. Of our members, 25% live outside the Omaha-Lincoln area. The question is, how "fair" is it to make these members continually drive to Omaha or Lincoln for a meeting? That consideration is why NLA's annual meeting moves around the state. Aurora is a fairly-central location; if you know of others, please let us know.

Now it's time to move on to the fall conference. We're excited about our pre-conference on "What is a book worth? Determining the value of a book." Dr. Sidney Berger, the presenter, is well-known in his field, and will offer a lot of information in this all-day event. Additionally, we have several presentations being made at conference; we'll look forward to seeing you at them in Lincoln.
