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.
