Phx Friends of UA SIRLS

News and info about librarianship, UA SIRLS, and libraries…

Small (but excellent) gathering at Maizie’s yesterday

Posted by Editor on May 29, 2009

Betty, Kathi and I met and enjoyed Maizie’s happy hour last night till just after 7 pm; hope we didn’t miss anyone. We discussed several ideas for upcoming gatherings, including re-contacting library people who had expressed interest in meeting with our group; the idea of meeting on Saturday; how school is going, and more.  I will contact some Tucson-based SIRLS faculty to entice them to visit Phoenix.  Good news:  Leslie Kent Kunkle will be in town this coming Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 and we will discuss future plans for Leslie to meet with us here, as well as her new task of recruiting SIRLS students.  If you have issues you’d like me to bring up to Leslie, let me know!

Other topics for the future include:  overview of specialized databases and/or web resources, member presentations about their current (and past) work lives, emerging info science trends, and more. I will be happy to present “finding quality health information” on the web, if you all are interested! We will aim for the next gathering to be the 2d or 3rd week of June, at 5:30 pm.  I still plan to attend the Michael Connolly chat at the Poisoned Pen on Thursday, June 4 at 7 pm.

Happy Weekend, all!
