#MLTW2017 — Dec. 5, 2017 — Opening

I just finished a good breakfast provided by Morningstar.  Be sure to stop by and thank them.  I attended the two receptions last night and met many new people.  I then went to the MLD board meeting.  Stay tuned for the minutes of that meeting.

 

Thanks to the vendors for your support of MLTW.

Dr. Peter Knight: Army Center of Military History

Roles of librarians important to our defense. Military librarians supported troops during WW1 (Library War Service).

Victory Book Campaign during both world wars.  Books provide help in recovery and sustain troop morale.

Instrumental in supporting military careers and transition to civilian life.

Military service greatest point of entry into increasing access to society.

Pathway to professionalism and social mobility.
