SLA2014: Military Libraries Division Open House held Tuesday, June 10, 2014

DMIL traditionally holds an Open House the final SLA Annual Conference Day. This Open House had an International theme. We welcomed over 100 SLA 2014 attendees and met with SLA 2015 Board Candidates. The DMIL jigsaw puzzle provides a way to decompress from the busy days of the SLA Annual Conference.

MLD Newsletter Status

On 9 Dec 2013, the board voted to do away with the newsletter in its current format. It will be integrated into the blog. Nancy Hicks, current newsletter editor, and I are investigating how best to do this and will come up with a plan to present to the board. Meanwhile, I will create a new category on the blog called MLD News that will be focused solely on the types of items previously reported in the newsletter. It is quite likely that these posts will also be assigned to other categories as well.

Wanted: Bloggers and Tech People

The blog and website are in full production mode.  What are now needed are volunteers interested in contributing content on a regular or irregular basis to the blog.  Posts can be short or long.  The topics can be related to special libraries or military libraries or libraries in general.  Opinion pieces are also welcome.  Do you have favorite search tools or strategies that you want to tell others about?  Is your library doing anything innovative?  Do you have technical knowledge to share? 

The website and blog is in need of at least one other person besides me to act as an administrator/ tech support when I can’t be reached.  Is there anyone familiar with WordPress and cPanel functions that would be interested in acting as my back-up? 

Bill Drew, SLA-DMIL Web Manager
