Our time to dazzle!

Dear Colleagues,

A few months ago, I asked members of the Military Libraries Division to send me a story or two about being a military librarian, but heard back from only four of the more than 200 members.  Please consider making a contribution now!

The Military Libraries Division of SLA is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.  We would like your help to create something special for current members, to dazzle members of other divisions (!), and to attract new members – a book filled with your stories and recollections.

Would you be willing to answer one or more of these questions, and send me your responses?

– Why did you first decide to work in a military library?  Was there something special that intrigued you about this type of library?  Was there a veteran or military member in your life who suggested that you get into this type of special librarianship?  If so, would you share the story with your colleagues?

– How do you make a difference as a military library employee?  Do you remember a special project, or customer, or challenge that you could relate?

– How does working in a military library inspire you?  Can you tell us one or more stories about special times in your career?

– What has your career meant to you, and why would you encourage others to become military librarians?

There is no set length for this assignment – it can be as short or as long as you like!   Please send me your contributions – preferably in the body of an email. I will edit (with your permission) and compile them into a booklet that we will post on our Division website for everyone to enjoy.

The new deadline for contributions is Friday, 30 August 2013.

My email address:

Dr. Gail Nicula
DOD Director
