New Group: Military Libraries Division on LinkedIn

After discussion with Michael Moore, I have set up a group on LinkedIn for the division.  It is at Military Libraries Division of SLA .  It is a members only group which means only those that belong to it can post to it or view it.  Membership is limited to SLA-DMIL members.

If you want to be added to the group, please send me your email address off list via my gmail address : bill.drew@gmail.com .

The previous DMIL page on LinkedIn was set up using the individual account not the group option.  It has been deleted.
