While you are on the MLW Website, be sure to check out the program of seminars that will add to your Professional Development and look at the listing of Sponsors you will meet at the Info/Expo. There are some very good opportunities for additional training at the Pre-Workshop - a Four Hour Session – DTIC Mini Boot Camp (contact DTIC to pre-register), and in the afternoon hear updates from OCLC, DTIC and FEDLINK…..all at no additional cost!
To top it off, the Military Libraries Division of SLA is celebrating their 60th Anniversary with a Dinner at the US Space and Rocket Center. This Dinner is included in the registration. So join your colleagues in saluting the 60 years that the Military Libraries Division has served the professional needs of military librarians and staffs, worldwide. Back in 1953 I was a 7th Grader……ooops, I’ve already told that story.
